Instructions

Pork Loin Filet

  • In a large bowl, combine pork loin filet, lime juice, garlic and cilantro. Poke holes in filet to let the juice penetrate. Marinade for 2-6 hrs in the fridge.
  • Turn oven on to 425F. In a baking pan, drizzle olive oil and place pork loin filet fat side up and marinade into the pan. Sprinkle salt and pepper generously on pork loin filet. Cover with foil and roast it for 45-50 mins or 140F temperature at the thickest point of filet. 
  • Once temperature is reached- turn broiler on, uncover pork loin filet and bake it for another 6-10 mins, turning it once.

Roasted Vegetables

  • Line a large baking sheet with aluminum or parchment paper. Drizzle it with olive oil. Place vegetables and drizzle them with olive oil. Sprinkle salt and pepper and mix vegetables to make sure they are evenly coated. Bake it at 425F for 10-15 minutes. 

Cilantro Pesto

  • Combine all ingredients into a blender. Process it until it is free of lumps. Set aside.

Notes

  • You can roast the vegetables in the last 10-15 mins of cooking the pork at 425F.
  • Cilantro pesto can be stored in fridge in air tight container for 1-2 days.
