"My husband likes his food spicy, so this pork roast is a favorite," says Christine Wall of Bartlett, Illinois. "It can be baked in the oven or on the grill. I like to serve it with roasted new potatoes seasoned with garlic and rosemary."


  • 2 pounds boneless pork loin roast
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 3 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 tablespoons dried oregano
  • 2 tablespoons dried thyme
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon each salt, crushed red pepper flakes, ground cumin and white pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg


  1. Rub pork roast with oil. Combine remaining ingredients and rub over roast. Cover and refrigerate for 1-3 hours.
  2. Bake, uncovered at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until a thermometer reads 145°. Transfer to a serving platter. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
