Slow Cooker Cuban Pork – The Magical Slow Cooker

Slow Cooker Cuban Pork

About 2 weeks ago at a potluck I tried Cuban Pork for the first time. I didn’t realize I needed a new recipe for pork until that day. The Cuban pork has a great citrus and garlic flavor, different from other pork recipes I have. This recipe has 10 garlic cloves in it, and smells great while cooking.

I served this meat with yellow rice, but I’m sure there are some other great Cuban side dishes that would go great with this too.

    extra virgin

    lemon

    lime

Instructions

  1. Add the pork shoulder to the slow cooker. Using a small knife cut slits into the pork, about an inch down.

  2. In a large bowl add the olive oil. Cut the lemon, lime and orange in half. Squeeze the juice out of the citrus into the bowl. Add the oregano, cumin, garlic, salt and pepper. Whisk until combined.

  3. Pour the mixture over the pork roast. Using a spatula squish the garlic and sauce into the pork.

  4. Cover and cook on LOW for 10 hours without opening the lid during the cooking time.

  5. Shred the meat with 2 forks and remove the bone. I left about half of the juices with the meat to keep it moist.
