Sour Diesel Lemon Kush Infused BBQ Pork Loin Roast and Jasmine Rice with Vegetable Pilaf

By Nkechi Ahaiwe

My inspiration behind this recipe comes from me wanting to enjoy the holidays after a crazy long year. I wanted to create a dish that was creative, elegant and fun to make! I infused my jasmine rice pilaf with homemade cannabis butter made from Caliva’s Sour Diesel Lemon Kush. Adding the butter to this dish amplified the incredible flavors of the cannabis flower! The process I used to make the cannabis butter was simple, straight forward and odorless. With the Pork Loin Roast, I made my own chocolate barbecue sauce with Chill's cannabis-infused milk and dark chocolate bars to glaze the roast. The sauce has a savory, spicy and sweet flavor all on its own.

Chocolate Barbecue Pork Loin Roast

  1. With a paper towel, pat dry the pork loin and tie it using some kitchen twine. (learn how-to tie a roast here) In a small bowl, combine ingredients for the dry rub (except rosemary). Rub the mixture evenly on both sides of the roast, and insert the rosemary springs securely underneath the twine.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place pork loin inside a roasting pan and bake for 30 minutes. Flip the loin and continue baking for 20-30 minutes until internal temperature reaches 145 degrees.
  3. While the pork loin is roasting, combine all ingredients for the chocolate barbecue sauce in a saucepan and simmer on low heat. Gently whisk sauce continuously until combined and set aside.
  4. Remove the roast from the oven and set oven to broil. Brush the chocolate barbecue sauce over the top of the pork loin evenly, and broil on high for 2 minutes to allow for the sauce to caramelize.
  5. Allow the roast to rest for 10 minutes and slice into 1/3" pieces. Garnish with fresh rosemary and extra sauce if desired.
