Dry Rub

  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp brown sugar packed
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 2 tsp chili powder


Pork Loin

  • 2 lb pork loin boneless
  • 1/4 cup oil


  • Combine dry rub ingredients together in a small bowl.
  • Rub the dry rub all over the pork loin. Place in a baking dish with 1/4 cup of oil.
  • Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.
  • Transfer the pork loin to the oven and bake for 30 minutes.
  • In another bowl mix all the glaze ingredients together. Pour the glaze over the pork loin and cook for an additional 30 minutes. Brush the loin with the glaze, 2 or 3 times during the last half hour of cooking. The loin is done when the internal temperature is 145 F degrees.
  • Transfer the pork loin to a cutting board and cover with foil. Let it rest for 15 minutes before slicing it and serving.


  1. Cooked pork loin will last in the fridge for up to 3 – 4 days if it’s stored in an airtight container.
  2. Be sure to freeze your pork within 2 hours of cooking to limit bacteria growth, and it’ll last up to 3 months. So enjoy that bad boy now or later!
