    Tasty pork recipe! I used smoked paprika and loved the combination with the cumin and coriander. Marinated about 3 hours, then cooked on the grill and really enjoyed - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for ZWT8, Chefs gone WILD!

    Made this for dinner and served over steamed white rice with a side of recipe#483615 They went together easy and enjoyed the blend of spices. I marinated for about 2 hours and the pork came out fork tender. Next time I'll try a differant variety of dipping sauces - maybe a sweet n sour variety. Made for ZWT 8, the Spainish leg for the Diners, Winers and Chives.
