Dry Rub Pork Loin Roast

This recipe is actually what I had made last night for dinner.  I just did not have a chance to post it last night.   This roast was amazing, the whole house smelled good and it was only 170 calories for 6 ounces.   Ted and I enjoyed this a lot and will try it again and maybe the rub mixture on some other kinds of meat as well.    Give this a try if you love lean cuts of pork, its delicious!

Serves 6

Ingredients

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper

1 tablespoon kosher salt

1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder

1 teaspoon dry mustard powder

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

1/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves

1 (2 1/2 pound) boneless pork loin roast

Directions

1Mix brown sugar, pepper, salt, garlic powder, mustard powder, ground ginger, onion powder, red pepper flakes, cayenne pepper, cumin, paprika, and thyme in a bowl. Rub spice mixture over pork loin and wrap tightly in plastic wrap. Place pork on a 9×13-inch baking dish and refrigerate for 4 hours to overnight.

2Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Remove plastic wrap from pork and discard; return pork to baking dish.

3Bake in the preheated oven until pork is slightly pink in the center, about 50 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Cover pork loosely with aluminum foil and let rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
