    Whipper's Note:

    Rob Rainford's cuban style pork on the grill... this citrusy and slightly spicy flavor makes for a nice change from the usual barbeque fare.

      This is a great tasting recipe and very authentic. I served it with Victor 52 Cuban Black Beans and Rice and it was a smash hit!
      One time instead of fresh loin, we had a huge pork roast that had been roasted and was put in freezer--so I just put marinade over the thawed sliced pork and left for 24 hr. and then baked for about 2-3 hr. until flavors mingled and it was not dry.

      Recipe was good. I did like the flavor and appearance of the marinade--my only issue with it is that it wasn't very strong. Even after marinating, my pork only had small hints of an orange juice flavor. Overall we still enjoyed it though

      I loved making this! It was so easy to make and it tasted great! My housemates all crowded around the kitchen and asked for 2nds and 3rds! I am going to make it again really soon for my parents and siblings.
