Let's Make It
Trim and discard excess fat from meat. Use sharp knife to cut 2-inch-deep slits, 2 inches apart, into top and bottom of meat.
Mix all remaining ingredients except rice and cilantro until blended. Reserve 1/4 cup dressing mixture for later use. Pour remaining dressing mixture over meat in large resealable plastic bag; seal bag.
Refrigerate 3 hours to marinate.
Heat oven to 375°F. Heat large heavy skillet sprayed with cooking spray on medium heat. Remove meat from marinade; place meat in hot skillet. Reserve marinade in bag for later use. Cook meat 3 to 4 min. on each side or until evenly browned on all sides.
Transfer meat to 13x9-inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray; pour reserved marinade from bag over meat. Cover.
Bake 50 min.
Cook rice as directed on package, omitting salt. Meanwhile, pour reserved dressing mixture over meat; bake an additional 15 min. or until done (145°F). Remove meat from oven. Let stand 10 min. Remove any fat that has risen to the top of meat juices with a spoon.
Combine rice and cilantro. Slice meat. Serve meat over rice mixture drizzled with juices from baking dish.
For added flavor, stir 1/2 tsp. ground cumin into dressing mixture before using as directed.
Substitute ground black pepper for the cracked black pepper.
Serve this tangy pork with a side of black beans.
For more flavor, marinate the meat overnight before cooking as directed.
Searing the meat before cooking it helps to seal the moisture in the cooked meat. When searing meat, the meat is added to a hot pan and then cooked until it is browned and can easily be released from the pan. The meat is not turned until the bottom of the meat is evenly browned.
