This dish is from south-eastern Spain where Moorish influences are still found in many dishes. The combination of middle eastern spices and pork is wonderful. These are often served on kebabs as part of a tapas dish called Pinchos Morunos. You can follow the same directions below, cutting the meat into 1 inch chunks and grilling for a few minutes on each side, for a very tasty kebab. Or follow my instructions for an equally tasty pork tenderloin. I'd recommend the kebabs if you're serving 6 or fewer or if serving as an appetizer. The tenderloin is much easier if serving a large crowd.
