In many Latin American countries, it's traditional to prepare a roasted pig or baked pork loin. Always season the meat the day before and refrigerate it overnight. Take the meat out of the refrigerator about 30 minutes before you put it in the oven. Some cooks like to use a baking bag because the meat stays tender and juicy and cleanup is a breeze.
