Wow! I think this is one of the best pork loins yet! I made half the recipe since I had a 1 lb. loin. One chipotle was plenty. I rubbed this all over the pork and marinaded for about 4-5 hours. I cooked the pork in our inside rotisserie and the flavor was phenomenal! The pork was so juicy and had a nice crunchy crust. It wasnt too spicy for the hubby either. It had nice flavor thru out. So good! I will make again and again! We both were "yumming" the whole time! Thanks for the great recipe!
Made tonight for dinner and it was really good. I had a 2lb pork sirloin roast, so I divided all the marinade ingredients in half, threw it all in the crockpot and let it cook on low for about 8 hrs. Very tender and full of flavor. If you are really looking for a "fiery" taste, don't cut back on the chipotles. I found this had nice flavor, but not what I would call spicy or "fiery". Thanks for sharing - will definitely make again.
A glorious taste sensation! I followed this and kept absolutely to this recipe; which, is well laid out, and a perfect, tender taste of the pork. I used a freshly, diced tomato, and wonderfully fresh orange juice. I don't see any changes to be made, (nor would you want to) and this is divine. Thank you, mikekey! Made for *Everyday is a Holiday* March 2009.
