  1. Combine first 6 ingredients (though red pepper), and marinate pork in mixture in a non-reactive container for several hours or overnight in the refrigerator. 
  2. Remove pork from marinade. Reserve marinade. 
  3. Put meat in a covered Swiss Diamond Grill Pan with low heat.  Cook for 15 – 20 minutes per pound.
  4. Heat the reserved marinade in a Swiss Diamond skillet until boiling (we recommend the skillet because the wider base will boil faster). 
  5. Baste meat with reserved marinade while grilling every 10 minutes or so. 
  6. Once finished, loosely cover the meat and let rest for about 15 minutes. 
  7. Slice and serve.
