Accompaniments:

Papaya mango salsa, recipe follows

Make mojo: In a small bowl stir together all mojo ingredients until salt is dissolved. Chill sauce, covered, at least 1 hour and up to 24.

Trim all fat from pork. In a sealable plastic bag mix pork and mojo. Seal bag, pressing out excess air. Marinate pork, chilled, 3 hours.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Drain pork, discarding marinade, and pat dry. In a small roasting pan roast pork 30 to 40 minutes, or until a meat thermometer inserted in center registers 160 degrees. Transfer pork to a cutting board and let stand 10 minutes. Cut pork into thin slices and serve with papaya mango salsa.

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander

Remove the seeds and peel papaya. Peel mango and cut flesh from pit. Cut papaya and mango into 1/4-inch dice and in a small bowl toss with onion and lime juice. Stir diced jalapeno into salsa with coriander and salt and pepper to taste. Cover the chill sauce, put it in the fridge for at least 2 and up to 24 hours.
