My mom came to visit me. That made for a wonderful opportunity for us to be together in the kitchen. Knowing that we had a house full of people, we ventured to make pork loin. This pork loin comes out moist and flavorful.

sour-orangeThis recipe calls for sour or bitter orange. Sour oranges are also known as Seville oranges although  its origin is from southeast Asia. Think of its flavor as a cross between an orange and a lemon. It is used widely in the Caribbean in marinades for pork and chicken.
