  • 1
    FOR THE PORK: Mix together the spice rub ingredients in a small bowl. Completely coat pork loin with the spice rub. You probably won't need all of the spice rub.
  • 2
    Preheat oven to 350°F. Add pork loin to a baking dish (I like to use a cast iron skillet) and roast until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 140-145°F . Use a meat thermometer to ensure doneness.
  • 3
    Once pork reaches correct temperature (probably about an hour of roasting), remove from oven and cover with foil. Let rest for 15 minutes and then slice into disks for serving.
  • 4
    FOR GRITS: Heat water, milk, butter, and salt in a medium pot. Bring to a simmer over medium heat.
  • 5
    When mixture is simmering, whisk in grits slowly and stir well.
  • 6
    Simmer grits over medium heat until they thicken nicely, about 10 minutes. Then add cheese and melt.
  • 7
    Season grits with salt and pepper. If they are too thick, feel free to add more milk to thin them out a bit.
  • 8
    Serve pork loin over grits and garnish with chopped scallions.
