    Season the pork loin with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.

    Add the sugar, molasses, garlic, onion, cilantro, cumin, vinegar and ancho peppers to a clean zip lock bag. Shake lightly to combine all the ingredients. Add the pork to the back, seal and let marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Leave it over night for even better results.

  • 3

    Preheat the oven to 375°F.

  • 4

    Place the pork and half of the marinade to a baking dish. Place the potatoes around the pork. Sprinkle with olive oil. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 160°F. Bathe the pork in the marinade every 10 minutes. Remove from the oven, cover in aluminum foil and let sit for 10 minutes before cutting.

Expert Tips

  • Use sweet potatoes, carrots or beets instead of potatoes to add a different touch. Keep in mind that the cooking times may be different for each, so I recommend cooking them in a separate dish.
  • Make it spicier by adding more ancho pepper.
