  • – I used a roast pork loin 4-pound tie. This recipe will also work for thinner whole pork loins. Just make sure everything adds up to 3-4 pounds.
  • Olive oil: Instead, avocado, safflower, sunflower, grapeseed, vegetable, or canola oils can be used.
  • Basil – Dried basil works best: Fresh basil is very delicate and will have trouble maintaining the long cooking time.
  • Soy sauce – I always opt for a low sodium content to control the salt levels on the plate!
  • Honey – Brown sugar or agave will work too!
  • Salt – Season to taste. If you are taking care of your sodium, salt can be omitted altogether since we are already using soy sauce.
  • Cornstarch

  • – Cornstarch will help thicken our sauce.
