To prepare the brine, dissolve salt in one cup of hot water and then add remaining 2-3 cups of water and let it cool to room temperature. To speed up the process you can add few ice cubes.
Add pork loin to the zip lock and pour over the brine. Place in a bowl and then in a fridge for at least a half an hour.
In the meantime, heat up you oven to 375F and prepare the marinade.
Add minced garlic, brown sugar, herbs and olive oil into a bowl and mix to combine.
Once the brining process is completed, pat the meat dry. Spray your baking dish with cooking spray and place your pork loin in the middle.
Rub the garlic/brown sugar/herbs mixture all over the pork loin. Transfer to the oven and cook for 40-45 minutes, until the internal temperature reaches 145F. Cover with foil and let rest for 10 minutes (it will continue to cook)
