Strawberry-Ginger Roasted Pork Loin Sandwiches

1 pork loin, trimmed
Kosher salt, to taste
Black pepper, freshly cracked, to taste
Garlic powder, to coat
1 jar locally preserved strawberry-
ginger syrup
10-15 potato rolls, sliced
Strawberries, thinly sliced, for garnish


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Thoroughly rinse and dry pork loin. Place on a roasting pan and season to taste with salt, freshly cracked black pepper and garlic powder. Cook for approximately 30 to 45 minutes or until meat thermometer reads 142 degrees.

Remove from the oven and immediately coat the pork loin lightly with strawberry ginger syrup using a silicon brush. Let rest for 15 minutes to allow syrup to seal in the pork’s natural juices and retain moisture.  

Brush on an additional coating of strawberry ginger syrup and slice.

Place sliced pork onto potato rolls and garnish with strawberries and a spoonful of syrup, if desired. Serves 10
