In the height of summer I am always looking for ways to take my favorite savory dishes and make them feel more seasonal. Sweet, once again, sends pork to a new level of flavor heaven in this recipe This Tea Marinated Pork Loin Roast with White Nectarines takes the spirit of summer and infuses it into an exquisite roast. The best part about this whole thing was that I set the marinade, which looks so pretty, and left for the day to help a friend move. When I came home, I just threw the pork onto a preheated grill for 45 minutes and dinner was pretty much ready.

Tea Marinated Pork Loin Roast

Serves: 4 to 6       Total Time: 60 Minutes + Marinade


  • 1 pork loin roast, about 2 lbs.
  • 2 cups of sweet tea or iced tea
  • 2 white nectarines, peeled and sliced thin
  • 2 small sprigs of fresh rosemary
  • 1 sprig of fresh thyme, chopped
  • salt to taste 


Step 1
Place your pork roast in a large, non-reactive bowl or dish. Pour over with the sweet tea and then salt to taste. Sprinkle with thyme, then top with the nectarine slices and sprigs of rosemary. Cover and marinate everything in the fridge until you are ready to cook.
Step 2
Preheat your grill to 375°F and prepare for indirect grilling.
Step 3
Remove the pork from the marinade. Insert a wireless digital thermometer like Napoleon’s PRO Series Wireless Digital Thermometer, and set your pork to cook over indirect heat.
Step 4
If you want, throw the marinade into a saucepan and heat it until simmering. Simmer for at least 5 minutes, or until reduced and slightly thickened. Remove from heat and use an immersion blender or a regular blender to make the sauce smooth.
Step 5
When your pork reaches 155°F, remove it from the grill and rest it under foil, for 10 minutes, before slicing. Add any juices from the pork to the sauce if you want.
Step 6
Serve the pork with your favorite vegetables and other sides.

Tea Marinated Pork Loin Roast with White Nectarines was sweet and porky. All in all a very enjoyable meal that combines the best parts of summer; sweet tea, fresh fruit, and barbecue. We served ours with farmer’s market fresh broccoli and roasted potatoes, but this would go equally as well with a salad like my Grilled Plum and Feta Salad or my Grilled Pear Salad. What flavor defines your summer?

Happy Grilling!
