Pineapple-Jalapeno Marinated Pork Loin

Pork loins are a lean dinner option and are readily available in most butchers or grocery stores. You'll often find them sold in a marinade, but I prefer making my own marinades at home. I have yet to find a jalapeno-pineapple marinade in the store, so I invented my own option.

Pineapple-Jalapeno Marinated Pork Loin


  • 2 pound pork loin
  • 1/2 pineapple, peeled and chopped
  • 4 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4-5 jalapeno peppers, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon peppercorns
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • A few sprigs of fresh rosemary, chopped

Cooking Directions

  1. Heat a small pan to medium heat and add peppercorns, cumin seeds and caraway seeds. Heat a few minutes until they begin to pop. Remove from heat and cool.
  2. To a food processor, add all ingredients except the pork loin. Process until a chunky marinade forms.
  3. Set pork loin into a wide flat dish and score it with a knife on each side. Pour marinade over the top and rub it into the meat. Refrigerate at least 2 hours, longer for fuller flavor.
  4. Preheat over to 350 degrees.
  5. Cook pork with the marinade for 40-45 minutes, or to preferred doneness and no longer pink in the middle.
  6. Rest a few minutes and serve!
