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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Puree the first 9 mojo marinade ingredients in a blender while slowly adding the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Transfer 1/2 cup of the mojo marinade into a container to keep in the fridge for later as a dipping sauce.
  3. Place the pork tenderloins in a ziplock bag and pour the remaining mojo marinade into the bag with it. Squeeze out the air, seal and place in the fridge overnight.
  4. Preheat grill to 350°F.
  5. Remove pork from marinade and remove excess marinade from it, then season with salt and pepper.
  6. Place the pork on the grill over direct heat and grill for 15-18 minutes, turning every 4 minutes for even gold browning.
  7. Remove pork from the grill and cover with aluminum foil and let rest for 10 minutes.
  8. Warm reserved mojo marinade to use as a dipping sauce.

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.
