How can I fix a 12lb. boneless pork loin. Its already been frozen.

Cut it into chunks, put it in a crockpot with a bottle of barbeque sauce and let it cook all day. At dinnertime, take a fork and knife and shred the now tender cubes and serve on hard rolls to make pulled pork sandwiches.

I don't know how many pounds my pork loin was, but it filled my 6 quart crockpot. It was partially thawed and I just sprinkled it all over with 2 envelopes of Italian salad dressing mix and 1 envelope of brown gravy mix and then turned it on low and let it roast for hours.
When it looked and smelled good and done, I checked to make sure the internal temperature was over 165 degrees. It was delicious! It had a wonderful gravy, which I supplemented by adding a couple of cups of water with an Au Jus Gravy packet. I doubt I'll ever cook a pork loin differently again. My family loved it!

We cook ours on our grill (after it has thawed) wrapped in aluminum foil Add some green peppers and onions and cook about 45 minutes to an hour (till it's done). You will know by cutting into it.
There is a PERFECT and easy recipe at http://www.recipezaar.com that never fails. It's called "Perfect Pork Tenderloin and it's the only way we cook it now. No guessing or cutting into it to see if it's done.
Take it to your meat dept. at your grocery store and
have them cut it into small roasts, if you don't want
to cook it all at once. They have saws that will cut
though the frozen meat. Then re-wrap the roasts until you are ready to cook them
rotiserie works great too
Another way to make BBQ pulled pork from frozen tenderloin...place the tenderloin in a roasting pan or casserole dish deep enough to hold water and the lid fits over the roast...add at least an inch, but as much as you can without boiling over...bake at 325 all day....makes a nice warm kitchen...at the end of the day when you are almost ready for dinner, take the meat out of the pan, shred it (I use two forks pulling away from one another), add your favorite BBQ sauce, heat completely, and eat. It is easy to refreeze this as well. I just pack into freezer bags and when the time comes, I place the frozen BBQ pork into a pan with a bit of water and more sauce and enjoy with little effort. I made 40 pounds of this for my son's graduation party over the summer, but the meat was made up a month in advance. I bought the meat on sale (50% of the reg. price) and it was even better after it had been frozen and reheated. It gave the sauce time to work its magic! It is fantastic if while it is in the oven, you also add salt, pepper, and chopped green pepper. Yum!!
