1/4 c. oil
2 T. cumin
6 garlic cloves, minced
2 T. lemon juice
4 T. cilantro, chopped
1 t. coarsely ground pepper
1/2 t. salt
In a small bowl, mix dry ingredients. Stir in oil then transfer to a blender or food processor. Mix to a smooth paste. Rub pork with paste; cover and refrigerator 2-4 hours. Heat grill to medium-high and cook pork on each side for 10 minutes. Turn grill to medium heat; move pork to area over indirect heat (Leave one side on, cook pork over other side) for about 1 hour or until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees. Remove from grill; let rest 10 minutes before slicing to serve.

Tips: This is a great recipe for pork loin and very easy to prepare. All that is left to do is to prepare a small side dish, like rice, and a salad and dinner's ready. I watch for pork loin to go on sale in bulk, usually a large 8-10 lb. piece. (I think I found it for $1.88/lb.) Then I ask the meat counter to cut it into 4-5 pieces. This saves me the trouble of having to cut it and makes several nice meals for my family. I also shared this recipe at Our Homeschool Home's On The Grill & Balancing Beauty & Bedlam's Tasty Tuesday.
