Garlic Maple Pork Injection

This Garlic Maple Pork Injection marinade adds flavor and moisture while keeping the meat tender and juicy throughout the cooking process. Our pork injection marinade works perfectly with all cuts of pork. Use it with pork shoulder, ribs, or thick-cut pork chops. The beauty of the garlic maple injection is that it’s easy to assemble and use. You will need a meat injector for the job. See below for my recommendations. The recipe makes enough marinade for 1 large pork shoulder or two smaller roasts.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup apple juice
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Place all ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat for 1 minute.

  • Let mixture cool completely before using on pork.

  • Discard any leftover injection marinade that has come into contact with raw meat.
  • For a smokier flavor, substitute regular paprika with smoked paprika.

  • Prep and trim the pork roast (ribs, chops, or whatever cut of pork you are using).
  • Draw up some of the liquid into the syringe.
  • Penetrate the pork roast about 1 1/2″ deep, and slowly inject the garlic maple injection solution.
  • There might be some. Take it slow and inject it into multiple spots. If some of the marinade spills out, blot it away with clean paper towels and proceed.
  • Wrap your pork roast with plastic wrap and place it into the refrigerator for 4-12 hours.
