2. Ingredients for Mojo Roasted Pork Loin
- 1 boneless pork loin roast (3 lb.)
- 1 Tbsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. black pepper
- 4 cloves garlic
- 1 Tbsp. olive oil
- 2 tsp. honey
- 1 tsp. chili powder
- 1 tsp. ground cumin
- 1 tsp. ground coriander
- 1 orange
- 1 lime
- fresh cilantro
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Cover a roasting rack with a sheet of aluminum foil, and poke small holes all over with the tip of a sharp knife. Line a roasting pan with heavy-duty aluminum foil and position the roasting rack inside of it.
Pat the pork loin dry with paper towels, then season it liberally on all sides with salt and black pepper. Make four 1/4-inch-deep slits throughout the pork loin. Stuff a garlic clove inside each.
Whisk together the olive oil, honey, chili powder, cumin, and coriander in a medium bowl. Zest the orange and lime into the bowl, and whisk to combine. Rub the mixture over the surface of the pork loin.
Cut the orange and lime into wedges.
Position the pork loin on the center of the foil-covered roasting rack. Arrange the oranges, limes, and cilantro around the meat.
Roast the pork loin on middle rack of oven until the meat reaches an internal temperature of 138-142°F, 75-90 minutes.
Check to see that pork loin is done. Remove from oven or add time as needed.
Discard the oranges, limes, and cilantro. Allow the pork loin to rest on the rack for 10-15 minutes. While it rests, it should reach an internal temperature of 145°F.
Transfer the pork loin to a cutting board. Carve and serve immediately.
