Extremely straight forward wet cured pork recipe. I used a beautiful pork loin I found at the market, and I had frozen marjoram that’s been patiently waiting in my freezer to find a friend. So here is a quick guide for curing 1 pound of pork loin. Or check out a much more in detail post on curing here: DIY Bacon
Knife for trimming and prepping pork.
Digital Scale 100gx.01g (enough precision to measure curing salt mix)
Cookie pan to catch dripping
The nicest freshest pork loin you can find. 1 pound.
10g sea salt (reduced it a bit, pork loin is leaner and will absorb more salt)
8g brown sugar
3g pink curing salt
0.5g black pepper corns.
0.5g coriander seeds, toasted, ground.
2 cloves crushed.
3 juniper berries, crushed.
8 marjoram springs
