Spiced Pork Loin

Prep once, eat twice! This is my rule when making pork loin. Pork loin comes in a pack of 2. When I first started cooking pork I was disappointed that I could not just buy one. Now, I rub the spices on each pork loin, place one in a baking dish to cook and the other in a bag and put it in the freezer.
