If you like food porn one of the best blogs for this is http://userealbutter.com. This avid cook and photographer always has a post that makes me drool. She made a Cuban Pork Sandwich that stayed in my mind for a couple of weeks before I made a version of her recipe. Since I am cutting down on carbs I decided to make her recipe but without the bread. I made the marinated Cuban Pork Roast but served it with sautéed bell peppers and onions and some steamed green beans. Very yummy.
I picked up a pork bootie(Pork Butt) at Costco.
Grabbed some mango juice at Whole Foods.
Marinated the bootie in mango juice, orange juice and a sliced orange, cumin, garlic and some rum. Lots of rum.
After I let it marinate overnight I put it in the oven at 425 for 1/2 an hour. This gave the pork a good browning. Then I slow roasted it all day at 250 degrees. All day….
I started the roast at 10:00 am and took it out at 7:00 pm. It was tender and yummy. When I put a fork in the roast it just fell apart.
I took some of the pan juices and sautéed the onions and bell peppers. Served the pork roast drizzled with some hot sauce. The hubby enjoyed the roast over rice but I abstained from the carbs. Yay me!
