Fiery mediterranean roast pork

Yield: 8 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 Heads garlic; separated into cloves (10-12 cloves per head)
¼ cup Chopped fresh rosemary -or-
2½ teaspoon Dried leaf rosemary
2 teaspoons Salt
2 tablespoons Frsh ground black pepper
1½ teaspoon Caribe (crushed N. New Mexico hot red chile)
¼ cup Extra-virgin olive oil
1 (5-lb) bone-in pork loin roast

In a blender or food processor, process garlic, rosemary, salt, pepper and caribe until pureed. With motor running, slowly pour in oil; process until a paste forms. Place pork in a roasting pan, bone down, then coat with rosemary mixture. Let stand at least 2 hours at room temperature to allow flavors to penetrate. Preheat oven to 400; roast pork 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 325 and continue to roast 1-½ hours longer until a meat thermometer inserted in the thickest part of pork (not touching bone) registers 170. Remove from oven and let stand 20 to 30 minutes to let juices settle. To serve, cut in medium- thick slices, cutting straight into bone so each serving will have some of the crust. Makes 8 servings.
