Pork Roast Marinade

I had my family over for Sunday dinner and what fun it was. I wanted something that I haven’t made in a long time or I wanted to try something new. I went with the new thanks to my son who came up with this idea.

Since some of my family eat meat this is a great marinade for pork but I did it for Tofu and it was great.

My son and I are what you call an estimate kind of cooks. when you make this you may need to add or maybe use a little less depending on your taste or amount of guest you are cooking for.

Use the 3-1 ratio for this ( 3 part oil and 1 part vinegar)

Olive Oil


1/4 cup Orange juice

1 Tablespoon of Lemon juice

1 Teaspoon of Lime juice

4-5 cloves of garlic diced and minced

Cilantro diced the amount is up to your taste, I like it so I used about a 1/4 cup

Italian Basil and Oregano diced ( after it is diced about 1-2 Tablespoon)

1 Tablespoon of mint diced

Sea Salt, Fresh Black Pepper, Cumin, Chili Powder to taste

Because I did this for pork and Tofu I made two batches plus I used two different containers.

In a large bag or container with a lid mix the above Ingredients add you pork roast or Tofu. ( Don’t forget if you are using tofu always remove all liquid from the tofu before you marinate. I do this by slicing the tofu in the desired size then placing tofu on a towel then covering the tofu before I place a heavy object on top for about 15 minutes.)

I marinated both over night. Next day I grilled the roast. Always follow the directions to cook the pork  for the size you have. I placed my tofu squares on at the last 15 minutes flipping only once. I had black beans, rice and white corn tortilla ( I grilled them quickly to warm them up) but any side dish will be great.
