This is my favorite Loin of Pork recipe. Living in the Southwest, however, I couldn't resist adding chili powder to the cumin mix. I bought some hot green chili powder in Hatch, NM last fall and have been adding this to the coating. I didn't realize until I reread the recipe today for the roasting temperature, that chili powder wasn't part of the original recipe. Thanks for posting this wonderful recipe.
