    *Bellinda*'s Note:

    I adapted this recipe from a recipe I copied from a cookbook a while ago. It's pretty simple to make and tastes really fresh and different from most other roast pork recipes. I serve it with rice and beans and a tomato salad.

    1. 1
      Combine all of the ingredients in a big covered dish or a gallon-size plastic storage bag. Try to squeeze out all the air.
    2. 2
      Marinate in refrigerator for at least 2 hours but if possible overnight. Turn the meat/bag a few time.
    3. 3
      Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Add the meat to a roasting pan and add all of the marinade.
    4. 4
      Roast at this temperature for 5 minutes, then lower the temperature to 350 degrees and roast until a thermometer shows you that the pork is 165 degrees. About 20 minutes. Don't overcook or it will dry out. Let stand for 5 minutes before you cut the roast.

      This was very good. I only used one jalapeno (and it was a pretty mild one) as I was afraid using two for the small amount of meat would be a waste. I might try pickled jalapeno next time for more heat. The orange flavor came through nicely though. I marinated about 16 hours or so (overnight). It did take a bit longer than 25 minutes to complete cooking - about 20-25 minutes more in my oven. I took out at a little over 155°, letting it coast up to 160° out of the oven. Juicy and tender - delish! Thanks for sharing :)

      Yummmmeh. I loved this pork roast. Spicy, savory and delicious.... just like me :) My kids hated it, but they didn't try it so that doesn't count. My DH liked it, and I loved it. The smell was fabulous. The orange flavo was just right with the spice. Awesome. Made and Reviewed for PRMR. Thanks! :)

      I was really scared once I ate a slice of the jalapeno I was marinating with....I grew them myself, and I found that it was much hotter than the peppers I got at the store. But this turned out delicious...not too hot...just right. It took a little longer to get it to the right temperature, but that turned out great...gave me time to get my sides ready! Loved the recipe. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT5.
