  • 2 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 1 Tablespoon Ancho Chile Powder
  • 2 teaspoons Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Dried Oregano
  • 1 Tablespoon Ground Cumin
  • 1 Tablespoon Paprika
  • ½ Tablespoons Dried Thyme
  • 1 whole Orange, Zested
  • 1 whole (about 3 Lb. Size) Boneless Pork Loin Roast

I made this last night, and I husband said it was the best pork loin I have ever made. It was so good. Thank you for sharing.

The rub itself is worth the recipe! Spicy, smoky, and sweet with the brown sugar and orange zest mixed in with the spices – this was a hit with my family. I only had a large (1.75 lb) pork tenderloin so it only needed to roast about 1/2 hour, but I followed the directions exactly for the actual recipe. The salsa was my husband’s favorite part of the meal; and the pork was juicy and flavorful. Leftovers were just as good the next day and I think they would have made an awesome Cuban panini…if I could’ve save a few pieces of pork! :)

This is a great recipe, very simple and fun. It was a huge hit in my house including those who don’t really care for pork!
