Tandoori Pork Roast


The flavors of Tandoori is not only for chicken....try it with pork.  This was such a quick meal to put together.  I marinated the pork for about 4-5 hours and then baked it for 30 minutes.  What a flavorful, succulent roast dinner with no real effort on my part.  Now that was a perfect way to spend my Sunday in the kitchen... or not spend it.

2 pound pork loin (lean)
1/2 cup yogurt ( I used Greek style because that's what I had)
1 Tbs Paprika
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 Tbs Garam Masala
Salt and Pepper
juice of half a lime
1-2 Tbs of my Ginger/Garlic Paste or 2 cloves of garlic and 1 inch of ginger grated

Slather the marinade/paste all around the pork loin and allow to marinate in the fridge for 4 hours to overnight.  

Take out of the fridge and allow sit on the counter for 20-30 minutes and then put on a baking sheet(cover it with foil for easy clean up) and bake it in a 375 oven for 30-35 minutes until cooked through. 

 Allow it to sit/rest on the baking sheet for at least 10 minutes before slicing.  Then slice and serve.  Enjoy!  Serve with fragrant rice and vegetables.
