Boneless pork loin roast is studded with garlic and then marinated in a fresh garlic, ginger, onion, and honey mixture. The result is a wonderful gentle flavoring of garlic and ginger. If you like a stronger flavor, feel free to increase those two main marinade ingredients. This recipe is easily doubled.


  • 2 large cloves garlic (divided)
  • 2 1/2 to 3 pounds boneless loin roast
  • 1/4 cup onion (minced)
  • Juice of 1 large lime (about 1/4 cup)
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons spicy hot mustard or Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
  • Kosher salt (to taste)
  • fresh-ground pepper (to taste)

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Cut one clove of the garlic lengthwise into thin slivers (like toothpicks). Use a skewer to poke holes all around the pork roast. Stuff holes with the slivers of garlic. Set aside.

  3. Force the remaining clove of garlic through into a large, freezer zip-top bag. Add the onion, lime juice, honey, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, and ginger to the garlic. Squish the bag to combine the marinade ingredients.

  4. Add the garlic-studded pork loin roast to the marinade in the bag. Squeeze out all the air and seal. Turn the bag over and over so the roast is surrounded by the marinade. Refrigerate for eight hours or overnight.

  5. Remove pork roast from the refrigerator one hour before cooking and let it come to room temperature in the bag.

  6. Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a roasting pan with heavy foil. Place the pork roast in the prepared pan. Top with the marinade and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake, uncovered, for one hour and 45 minutes.

  7. Remove from oven, cover with foil, and let rest for 30 minutes before slicing to serve.

  8. Enjoy!
