  • 1 - 4 pound Pork Loin Rib End Roast
  • 1 lime or lemon to clean meat

For the Brine:

  • ¼ cup of kosher salt
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 cup lemon juice
  • 6 cups water
  • 8 whole cloves

For the marinade

  • 5 garlic cloves minced
  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped thyme
  • 1 ½ tablespoon fresh parsley finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary leaves chopped finely
  • ¼ cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper


  • Clean the pork roast by rubbing and squeezing the lemon/lime halves all over the meat. Rinse under running water, pat dry and set aside.
  • In a large container with a cover prepare brine by making sure that the salt and sugar have dissolved. Placed pork roast in brine mixture, cover and brine overnight.
  • After brining, the roast, remove the meat from the mixture, pat dry and set aside. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, blend the garlic with the olive oil, thyme, parsley, oregano, rosemary and lemon juice. Rub the herb paste all over the pork roast and let stand at room temperature for 2 hours or refrigerate overnight.
  • Preheat the oven to 500°. Remove the pork roast from the marinade and in a small roasting pan and season with salt and freshly ground pepper. Roast the pork for 15 minutes, then reduce the oven temperature to 325°. Continue roasting the pork for 40 minutes longer, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the meat registers 155°. Transfer the pork to a carving board and let stand for about 10 minutes. Cut between the ribs, transfer the chops to plates and serve.
