Moroccan Pork Loin

Try this intense spice rub on pork or chicken. A little goes a long way, so don’t overdo it. Instead, give the meat a chance to absorb the rich, complex flavors. We recommend serving it with Athenian Couscous Salad.


  • Roast:

    • 2 lbs. pork tenderloin or sirloin roast, trimmed
    • 2 large onions, sliced

    Spice Rub:

    • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
    • 1½ tsp. cumin
    • ½ tsp. cinnamon
    • 1 clove garlic, chopped
    • ½ tsp. salt
    • ¼ tsp. pepper


  1. In a small bowl, combine the spice rub ingredients. Spread the mixture onto the pork tenderloin, coating all sides, and place pork in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours to marinate.
  2. Preheat oven to 375ºF. Line a small, shallow roasting pan with foil and place the onions down. Place the pork tenderloin on top of onions and roast until a meat thermometer inserted into the center of the meat registers 155ºF (35-45 minutes).
  3. Remove the pan from the oven, move the meat to a plate and cover with foil. Allow the meat to rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
  4. Slice thinly and serve with the onions and pan juices.
