Ingredients

  • 1.5 - 2

    lb sirloin tip pork roast

  • 2

    tablespoons brown sugar

  • 2

    teaspoons kosher salt

  • 2

    teaspoons chili powder

  • teaspoon cumin

  • 1

    teaspoon smoked paprika

  • 1

    teaspoon dried oregano

  • 1

    teaspoon granulated garlic or garlic powder

  • ½

    teaspoon onion powder

  • ½

    teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper

  • ¼

    teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 3

    tablespoons olive oil

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine all the spices in a small bowl. Add the olive oil and stir well to combine. It will be a thick, paste-like consistency. Allow this mixture to rest for 15 minutes. Line a small baking sheet with foil and place a wire rack over it. Rinse the roast and pat dry. Rub the spice mixture all over the roast, completely covering all sides with spices. Roast 1 - 1.5 hours in the preheated oven. The cooking time really will vary that much, if you have an internal thermometer, this is the time to use it. Otherwise, keep an eye on the roast and check the temperature every few minutes as it gets close to done. Remove from the oven when the meat reaches an internal temperature of 145-150 degrees. Let sit 15 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!
