Cumin is one of our must-have spices. Here, it's combined with chili powder, vinegar, and the sweetness of brown sugar to create a zesty flavor. The pork can marinate for up to 24 hours, so you can prep it the night before your Sunday dinner. The creamy Mashed Potatoes With Blue Cheese and Parsley are a perfect accompaniment.
