For minimal fuss, prepare the marinade a day before. At mealtime, simply close the cover and let the grill do all the work.

Ingredients

  • 3 lb boneless pork roast
  • 1 cup parsley, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup onion, chopped
  • 6 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp red pepper, crushed
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • lemon slices, for garnish
  • lime slices, for garnish

Directions

  • Place pork roast in self-sealing plastic bag. In food processor, place parsley, onion and garlic and pulse until minced. Add remaining ingredients, except garnish, and process to blend. Coat pork in plastic bag with this mixture. Seal bag and refrigerate overnight.
  • Prepare medium-hot fire in grill. Remove pork from marinade (discard marinade) and place pork roast over drip pan on grill over indirect heat. Close grill cover and cook about 1 hour (20 minutes per pound), until internal temperature on a thermometer reads 150° F. Remove roast from heat; let rest until temperature reaches 160° F, about 10 minutes before slicing. Garnish with lemon and lime slices.
