Recipe by Kathy Caswell
"This is a delicious, easy to prepare main dish that is a little different. The meat is cured overnight in a dry rub of sugar, salt, cumin and cardamom. Be sure not to over cook or the meat will be dry."

boneless pork loin roast
This is my husband's new favorite recipe - it was SO tender and delicious! Since the spice rub had cardamon, I served the pork with Sauteed Apples (also on Allrecipes.com) to compliment the sweetness in the rub. I was more than happy with my choice - it was a GREAT combination! We didn't grill the pork, but baked it at 500 for 20 minutes to seal in the juices, then at 350 until it hit 160 degrees. Yum, yum, yum!
My family and I thought this recipe was on the salty side. I rubbed the roast with the ingredients that were listed, and let it "marinate" for over 30 hrs. Cooked it on our gas grill, on indirect heat for 1 1/2 hrs. Very tender! The flavors were good, but next time I will use less salt.
I used this recipe last night on a 1 pound tenderloin (it’s just my husband and I). I didn’t scale the spices down for the rub even thought it was a smaller roast. I grilled it with indirect heat for about 20 minutes until it reached an internal temperature of 155. I then pulled it off the grill and lightly tented it with tinfoil and allowed it to rest for five minutes. This allowed the internal cooking to finish nicely. My husband and I loved the flavor. The cardamom and cumin were present, but not overpowering. Next time I will decrease the salt though. We both love salt, but thought it was too much for the smaller roast. This will be a staple in our household for years to come. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
Didn't know pork could taste this good! I was upset about paying as much as I did for this piece of meat but was very glad I did when I tasted the results. I followed the recipe exactly and was very happy with the results. Cooking it on the grill was wonderful and half the mess!
I had no idea that pork could taste like this! We grilled a 4 lb roast and followed the exact recipe, curing the roast for about 23 hours. It cooked on the grill for about 1 hour 15 minutes, and was incredibly juicy and flavorful. You can just taste each of the spices, and they work perfectly together. We grilled corn-on-the-cob to go with it, and it was wonderful, although I want to try the other reviewer's apples, too! Well worth the wait for something so easy that tastes so great!
excellent. I didn't have any cordomom, so I used some Coriander instead. Tasted great. Very easy recipe, with a great payoff.
Made this today, the pork turned out so juicy and spiced just right. I served with Hasselback potatoes, sauteed apples and lingonberry preserves! What a yummy meal, will definetely become a favorite in my house!
The spices on this were very subtle and enjoyable. My son would prefer that I not rinse the meat as much as he likes a lot of salt. I on the other hand thought it was seasoned perfectly. Now for the cooking time, I always always use a meat thermometer and never go by the cooking times listed. I cook pork to 155 degrees and then pull it off the heat and cover it with foil for about 10 to 15 minutes before carving. This was very juicy.
