Beer Pork Loin with Spicy Sweet Rub

This one just popped in my head. I was sitting on the couch trying to get inspired. Nothing on Pinterest looked yummy today so.. I went sifting through the spices trying to come up with something different. I love the cast iron pot and wanted to use it, but I needed a rub that works with everything I wanted to eat today. 

Boy did I come up with something… So good. Made my day. đŸ™‚

This recipie can use your crock pot if you do not have a cast iron pot. 

First thing were going to do is make the rub.

Supplies for rub:

  • Mixing bowl
  • Fork
  • Measuring cup and spoons
  • Container for extra


  • 2 table spoons of pepper
  • 3/4 cup of light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup of salt
  • 1/2 cup of paprika
  • 3/4 cup of sugar

In your mixing bowl combine all ingredients.

Use your fork to mix. Be sure all ingredients are combined very well.

Set aside.

Pork Loin prep:


  • 1 – 5 quart cast iron pot with lid (You can use a crockpot if you don’t have a cast iron pot. Just be sure to adjust your cook time)
  • Baking sheet to rub down your pork


    • 1 – 2 pound pork loin 
    • Rub 

    Place your pork loin on your baking sheet.

    Cover the entire loin with rub. Use as much as needed to cover completely.

    Place in your cast iron pot or crockpot, cover and allow to flavor through the night before or at least 4 hours before you cook. 

    While your loin is flavoring you can cut your vegetables.

    Supplies for vegetables:

    • Cutting board and knife
    •  Bowls for vegetables


    • About 9 small red potatoes cut into fours
    • 1 – 5 ounce bag of fresh brussel sprouts (cut bottom ends off, rinse)
    • 1/2 vidilia sweet onion sliced
    • 2 large garlic cloves (peeled and sliced)
    • Pepper
    • Garlic salt
    • 1 can of beer

    Preheat oven to 350°

      Cut your red potatoes in fours.

      Next cut the ends of your brussel sprouts, rinse.

      Put your vegetables in bowls to make it easier for you to put your dinner together.

      Once your loin has flavored through you will be layering your vegetables on top. 

      First add your potatoes. Covering the entire loin, allow some to fall to the sides.

      Next add your brussel sprouts then onions and garlic. Cover evenly.

      Sprinkle evenly your garlic salt and pepper.

      Pour your beer off to the side of your loin. Use the entire can.

      Cover and cook in the oven for about 2 hours. In the crockpot 4 to 6 hours on low. 

      Pork Loin is considered finished cooking at 145° or when sliced through you see no pink.

      For best results drizzle some of the juices from the pot over your meat for even more flavor.

      Serve warm. 

      Serves about 4 to 6
