Rubs are mixtures of spices that act like a dry marinade. The can be applied 10 to 20 minutes before cooking or longer to intensify the flavor. This rub also works well on chops or tenderloin. Serve with Crispy Half-Baked Potatoes and steamed vegetable medley.


  • 2 1/2 pounds pork loin roast (boneless)
  • 1 1/4 cups brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons black pepper (coarsely ground)

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons crushed red pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin

Hello, I just used your Pork Roast with the World's Best Pork Loin Rub recipe. I wanted to give you some feedback. First, I halved the recipe as I was only planning to cook for two. Despite this, I made such a large amount o f rub, I had way too much leftover. You only call for 1/2 cup of rub on the pork, so why do you have us waste 3 cups or more of spices? Secondly, the oven temp listed is way off. I used the suggestion of 20 minutes per pound and after 30 minutes for a 1.3 lb roast, the pork's internal temp was only 80-85 degrees. 325 degrees oven temp is way too low. Looking up other recipes, I was able to increase my oven temp to 400 degrees and finish the roast. Finally, most oven thermometers list pork to be roasted to internal temp of 160 degrees for medium and 170 degrees for well done. I would suggest you warn people that 145 degrees will be quite rare.
