Yield:
1 (6 pound) pork loin roast

Ingredients

  • ½ cup fresh lime juice

  • ¾ cup soy sauce

  • ¾ 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

Directions

  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).
