Cuban style pork??
I Am in Miami for work and just had a traditional pork dinner at a Cuban restaurant that would have knocked my socks off if it weren't 100 degrees and I had socks on... Does anybody have a recipe to share for primal Cuban pork? I would be eternaly grateful.
The marinade is called mojo criollo. I like it on just about every kind of meat, really. You can buy bitter orange juice in most Hispanic markets. From there add olive oil, garlic, oregano, pepper and salt. I add a little bit of sugar, not primal but it isn't that much, and water. If you can't find bitter orange juice you can mix equal parts orange juice and lime juice. It works really well in a crock pot. Slice onions and marinate the whole thing then dump in the crockpot or in a Dutch oven and slow roast. Goya makes a brand that doesn't have too much added stuff in it.

Muchas gracias! I am definitely trying this when I get home. A little sugar cheat will be totally worth it. I am still reeling from that meal. Just like my Jack's BBQ last weekend when I was in your Nashville self control while traveling is a challenge...
Not sure how authentic this is, but it tastes really good.

Oh man, I really need to try that. I grew up eating Cubans . . . heh. The BEST sandwiches EVAR. Now I can't eat bread at all and it makes me very sad, otherwise I would definitely make that part of my 20% whenever I visited Florida. Yay! Excited!

But the end result was still fantastic. I used to love cuban sandwiches. This makes a good substitute.
Not sure how it differs from Cuban, but here is a great recipe for pernil... It's a puerto rican pork dish and 100% paleo..
