Grilled Pork Loin Roast

Prep time 20 mins
Chill time 6 hrs
Grill time 1 hr, 10 mins
Stand time 10 mins
Yield Makes 6 to 8 servings
This easy grilled pork loin roast gets its distinctive sweet and tangy flavor from the marinade of lemon-lime soft drink, brown sugar and soy sauce. Tie the roast with kitchen string to create a shape that will cook evenly, look great, and be easy to slice.

Ingredients

  • Soda Pop-and-Soy Marinade
  • 1 (2 1/2-lb.) pork loin roast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • Garnish: fresh flat-leaf parsley sprigs

How to Make It

  1. Place Soda Pop-and-Soy Marinade in a shallow dish or large zip-top plastic freezer bag. Pierce pork loin roast several times with a knife; add roast to marinade, and turn to coat. Cover or seal, and chill 4 to 6 hours, turning occasionally.

  2. Light one side of grill, heating to 350° to 400° (medium-high) heat; leave other side unlit.

  3. Remove roast from marinade, discarding marinade. Pat roast dry, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Tie with kitchen string, securing at 2-inch intervals.

  4. Place roast over lit side of grill, and grill, covered with grill lid, 5 minutes on each side or until browned. Transfer roast to unlit side, and grill, covered with grill lid, 1 hour or until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 150°. Remove from grill, and let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Garnish with parsley sprigs, if desired.
