The spices and herbs in this dish made for a really delicious meal. I used a 1 lb piece of pork loin and marinated for about 3 hours then grilled it. I browned it on the flame side then moved it to the non -flame side to finish roasting it. I cooked the pork to 145 and it was very moist and flavorful. Another great keeper from SWT 2019
