Roast Pork Recipe

  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • 3/4 cup soy sauce
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 (6 pound) boneless pork loin roast
  • 1 large onion, sliced into thin rings
  • 2 bay leaves
  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the lime juice, soy sauce, sugar, ginger, garlic, and salt until the sugar dissolves.
  2. Place the loin of pork in a roasting pan, and scatter the onion rings and bay leaves over it. Pour lime-ginger mixture over the meat, and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 12 hours or so, turning every once in a while.
  3. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  4. Roast, uncovered, for about 3 1/2 hours; baste frequently with pan juices. For a well done roast, cook until the internal temperature of the roast is 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).
