How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 425 F.
  • Combine lime zest, garlic, pepper, cumin, chili powders and salt in small bowl; mix together to form a slight damp rub.
  • Rub pork with small amount of oil; smear rub mixture all over pork.
  • Place in oven, fat side down, for 10 minutes; turn over roast and cook for 15 minutes, and continue cooking until internal temperature reaches 145 degrees F. (Check temperature every 10 minutes or so, depending on size of roast)
  • Remove from oven; let rest 10 minutes before slicing.
  • Notes: You can use any type of chili powder you like - I like the combination of ancho and chipotle. Also, I like to grated the garlic to get a strong garlic flavor - you can use garlic paste if you have it, or even garlic powder.
  • Also, I used a pork loin roast - not tenderloin, BUT you could certainly use tenderloin - just watch the cooking time, as tenderloin is leaner and smaller, so it will cook faster. At 425 degrees, my almost 3-lb. roast was done in 55 minutes.
