Recipe of the Week - Cuban Pork Shoulder

Time for the Tuesday Recipe Link up! I am linking up with Tasty Tuesdays and In and Out of the Kitchen.

Yesterday, since I was at home, I decided to try something new and found a recipe for a Cuban Pork Shoulder that I thought would be good and then we could also use the leftovers for a Cuban Paninni. It really turned out good, the boy and I both loved it. We did not marinade it for as long as it said to, and I think I would have liked to have cooked it a tad longer, but it was delicious.

Recipe Cuban Pork Shoulder
1 pork shoulder, approx 4-5 pounds
1 head garlic, cloves chopped
1 orange, zested and juiced

2 limes, zested and juiced

1 lemon, zested and juiced
1 tablespoon dry oregano
1 bay leaf
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1/2 cup olive oil

2 tablespoons vinegar
1/2 cup mango paste
1 tablespoon coarse salt
1 tablespoon black pepper

Score skin of pork shoulder. Combine all marinade ingredients and pour over/rub into pork shoulder. Marinate overnight to 2 days.

Preheat oven to 250F. Roast pork shoulder in marinade for about 3-4 hours. Enjoy!
We served ours with just white rice, I think next time I would do black beans and white rice.
