Very Easy


Number of serving: 4
3 tablespoons olive oil

2 cloves garlic, crushed

1 boneless pork loin, about 2-3lb

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 teaspoon paprika

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1 tablespoons brown sugar

1 cup mayo

8 cloves roasted garlic

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice

2 tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate

1/2 teaspoon ground pepper


  • In a small bowl, combine the oil and garlic and let stand 5 minutes to infuse the flavours.
  • To make the mojo mayo, in a blender or a food processor, combine the mayo, roasted garlic, 2nd ground cumin amount, lime & orange juices, and black pepper.
  • Blend until smooth. Refrigerate until ready to use. Rub the pork on all sides with the garlic-infused oil.
  • In a small bowl, combine the first cumin amount, oregano, paprika, salt, pepper and brown sugar.
  • Rub this mixture over the pork, coating all sides. Heat the grill to medium high and sear the pork until browned on all sides, about 10 minutes in total.
  • Turn off one burner and move the pork to the unlit side of the grill. Cover the bbq and cook the loin for 30-45 minutes longer, until the meat is cooked but still pink inside.
  • Use an instant read thermometer - the internal temperature should be about 140F.
  • Let the pork loin rest on the cutting board for 10 minutes before slicing.
  • Drizzle with mojo mayo and serve alone or on sandwiches with sliced avocado, tomatoes and cilantro.
