Perfect for any time of the year, your family will absolutely LOVE this Chili Lime Grilled Pork Loin! The marinade is easy, and it’s easy to cook. My favorite thing about this recipe is that it works well grilled (my favorite way to make it), roasted, or in the slow cooker! So you can prepare this well ahead of time, freeze it, and then pull it out at any time to make for dinner!
The chili powder, the lime juice… they just work SO well together. It’s got a nice tang, nice spice and just the tiniest bit of heat. go ahead and add some cayenne pepper if you really want it spicy!
But here’s the thing about pork loin, you’ve got to make sure not to overcook it on the grill or in the oven. Back in the day, the USDA said you had to cook pork loin to 165 degrees. That is a great way to overcook your pork.
So don’t do that. Instead, this come out perfect if you pull it from the grill or oven when the internal temperature is between 137-140 degrees. Then let it rest for a good 15 – 30 minutes. It will rise another 5-10 degrees during this time as the residual heat cooks it a bit more.
