Marinated Citrus Pork

Servings 8
Author Denise Wright (MyLifeCookbook.com)


  • 1 large pork loin
  • 4 oranges juiced
  • 2 limes juiced
  • zest of 1 orange and 1 lime
  • 1 Tablespoon oregano
  • 2 Tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • cup tightly packed cilantro
  • salt & pepper


  1. Pour everything (except pork) into a blender or food processor and blend.
  2. Put pork into a large ziplock bag and add the marinade. You may have to cut the pork in half if it is too big.
  3. Set in the refrigerator for 4- 6 hours.
  4. When ready to cook, heat your dutch oven on high and a tablespoon or two of olive oil.
  5. Sear your pork loin on both sides for about 4 minutes each or until you get it browned a bit.
  6. Add back the marinade and turn the heat down to medium.
  7. Cover and cook until the internal temperature is about 170 on a meat thermometer. This took me about an hour.
  8. Let rest for 15 minutes and then slice.
