Cuban Pork “Mojo”

This pork is inspired by a traditional Cuban recipe. My husband and I learned to make this a few years ago, when we were trying to make the perfect pork shoulder. This meat will be everything you want: Tender, juice, flavorful, and easy to make. This is one of my favorite recipes when I’m busy. I usually make sandwiches, eat it with rice, or salad.

  • 1/4 Cup Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice
