Honestly, I don't really love pork roast but this spice rub is delicious and would be great on chicken or turkey too. I think next time I will follow this exact recipe but use a turkey roast instead.
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon coarse salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 2-pound boneless pork top loin roast (single loin)
DirectionsIn a small screw-top jar combine cumin, brown sugar, chili powder, cinnamon, red pepper flakes, coarse salt and black pepper. Cover and shake well to combine. Remove 2 tablespoons for this recipe. Store remaining rub, covered, at room temperature for up to 1 month.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Trim fat from pork roast. Rub 2 tablespoons seasonings blend over all surfaces of the pork roast. Place roast on a rack in a shallow pan and insert an oven-going thermometer. Roast for 1 hour or until thermometer registers 155 degrees F. Remove from oven. Cover meat with foil; let stand 15 minutes. The temperature of the meat after standing should be 160 degrees
