“Boneless pork loin marinated in tequila and covered with a flavorful rub. Adapted from dLife. The recipe calls for fresh lime juice, but I used bottled (not the sweetened type) since 2 cups of lime juice is about 32 limes and that is too expensive and time consuming for a marinade :) Use 1 fresh lime for the zest and add juice from that lime to the bottled juice. Prep time includes 24 hour marinating time.”
