This is the easy
way to do it.
You’ll get a perfectly tender and juicy roast pork.
I just use bottled
Mojo marinade from the grocery store.
Mojo, a delicious citrus and garlic marinade.
Marinate a pork loin in enough Mojo sauce
to completely cover. This is about a 3 lb loin roast.
Poke some holes all over the pork to allow the
sauce to flavor the meat. Marinate overnight.
The next day when you are ready to roast,
season generously with salt, pepper, and
Adobo All Purpose Seasoning. I used
Goya Adobo here
too. Put it on a rack
and roast fat side up @400º for 1 hour.
Let rest, covered with foil while you
make some great gravy to go along with it.
Add about 1 C water plus 2 t beef bullion powder
or 2 cubes to the pan. Place over a burner on
medium- high heat scraping up and browned bits.
Dissolve 1 T cornstarch in another 1 C cold water.
Whisk into the pan and stir until it comes to a
simmer and thickens; about 2 minutes.
Taste for seasoning adding more if needed.
Lower the heat to keep warm. Pour into
a heated (rinse in hot water) gravy boat.
Slice the pork into thin slices. I served it with
mashed potatoes with lots of gravy and
a green vegetable.

tip: I buy a large pork loin at Costco and
cut it in half. One for dinner now and one for
the freezer. You can add the Mojo marinade
to the bag and freeze it all together. Then
it thaw in the fridge for about 2 days
before roasting. Have the meat at
room temperature before putting it
in the oven, or add 10 minutes to the
