Rewarming pork loin

by Larry Greenly » Sun Apr 09, 2006 2:17 pm

Last night I roasted a pork loin, but we ate only a few slices, leaving the rest intact.

So, what's your ideas on rewarming it? Should I slice it or leave it intact? And what rewarming process would you recommend?

It's going to be tough to rewarm without drying it out, but one trick I've seen used is to wrap the meat in lettuce leaves, then rewarm gently in a covered pan.
I hope you don't mind if the meat winds up tasting like lettuce :lol:

Seriously, it helps keep some moisture in.

Following up on John's advice, I'm thinking that something like a braise, rewarming it gently in a little broth or other savory liquid, might do the trick.

In the restaurant we have always favored wrapping in romaine leaves. They are large, sturdy and don't impart flavor, but do retard drying out.

Who says you can't learn something new everyday. Like Larry we will brine a pork loin, grill it to 135 and then tent it and it gets to 155. There is always some left. Do I understand you wrap it in romain and then do you put it in foil and then into the oven? I would think 350 degrees until the inside is 130 plus. It that it or are there more secrets.

Just the leaves, no foil - the temperature buildup can be intense inside foil, causing the meat to overcook. Just as we never "bake" a potato in foil. Otherwise your procedures sound just dandy. (Oh,and I do the foil tent myself on roasts for the resting time.)

No need to reheat it.

I would leave it as it is and thinly slice it in the mornings with some jelly. That's a very traditional Eastern European breakfast...
