However, it was really good. (Minus the pan mishap, burning the marinade on the bottom of the roasting pan, that hopefully with some good tips I’ve gotten, will be fixed soon!)
I cooked it for my sister, brother-in-law, J and myself. We all liked it!
1 4-5 lb pork loin
1 cup fresh squeezed orange juice (none of the juice I used was fresh squeezed, I’m too lazy for all that :p )
1/2 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
5 ounces yellow onion, 1/4″ diced
2 tablespoons garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon cumin, ground
1 tablespoon oregano, fresh, chopped (I didn’t have fresh, so I used dried)
1/2 teaspoon black pepper, ground
1 teaspoon kosher salt
3 tablespoons cilantro, fresh, chopped
1 cup olive oil
Floribbean Mojo Sauce:
1/2 cup vegetable broth
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1 cup fresh orange juice
1 cup yellow onion, 1/4″ diced
1 cup plum tomato, 1/4″ diced
1/2 cup red pepper, 1/4″ diced (I don’t like red pepper so I skipped this)
1/4 cup scallion (green onion), 1/4″ sliced
1 tablespoon oregano, fresh, chopped (again, I used dried)
2 tablespoons cilantro, fresh, chopped
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon allspice, ground
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
3/4 teaspoon black pepper, ground
1/2 teaspoon thyme, dried (I didn’t have any thyme, so I skipped this also)
pinch Cayenne pepper
Combine all ingredients for the marinade and then pour over the pork loin. (I put them in a ziplock bag). Let marinate in the refrigerator overnight.
When you are ready to cook, preheat the oven to 375. Bake for about 35 minutes on a rack in a roasting pan, until the internal temperature is a minimum of 155. (It took about an hour for this to bake. I don’t know if it was just the oven or not. But after 35 minutes, we even turned it up to 400 degrees.)
Combine all ingredients for the sauce in a food processor or blender. Mix until smooth. Mine was not quite smooth. It was more of the consistency of a very thin salsa. But still good!
Place in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 2-3 minutes. Keep on the lowest setting until the pork is done.
Slice pork and ladle the sauce over the pork.
