Pork Loin with Barbecue Rub

As I’m still working through my pork loin roast, I’ve been coming up with as many options for the rest of it. I’ve always been a big fan of BBQ pork, so I thought it would be great for a potion of it. For this, I made a standard BBQ pork rub. The paprika adds a nice smokey flavor to the rub. The cumin and cayenne also add a bit of spice, but without much heat. The rub recipe below is good for 2-3 normal sized pork chops. If you were to use this rub on a roast, you will need to double or triple it. I also served this BBQ pork with BBQ sauce, bacon ranch suddenly salad, and a can of baked beans.


What You’ll Need

  • 1 Slice of Pork Loin Roast or 3 Medium Pork Chops
  • 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 Tbsp Ground Cumin
  • 1/2 Tbsp Paprika
  • 1/2 Tbsp Cayenne Pepper
  • Small Bowl
  • Baking Pan Lined with Foil


  1. Heat oven to 350 F. Place the pork on the foil lined sheet. Mix together remaining ingredients in the small bowl. Coat each side of the pork, and coat edges.

2. Place the pork in the oven. Bake raw pork for 25-30 minutes or cooked pork for 15-20 minutes, until internal temperature reaches 165 F.
