Mealthy Tip

Sour orange juice can be squeezed from a type of orange that provides a bitter flavor due to the higher acidic content. Several of the most common varieties of this type of orange include the Bergamont or the Seville oranges. If you can't find one of these varieties, use equal parts of orange and grapefruit juice or use 2 parts orange juice combined with 1 part lemon juice and 1 part lime juice.

So good! I used the meat to make a pressed sandwich for my sister and me. Plus, enough left overs to eat the next day with rice and beans. Delicious and quick, without having to spend hours marinating or cooking.

This Cuban style pulled pork was really good. Perfect with tacos, rice, or beans. The flavor of the meat is so good you can really eat it by itself.

Very good pork recipe! Instead of having it with rice and beans, I ate it with cilantro lime quinoa. This marinade was delicious, well done.

This recipe is easy, flavorful, and versatile! Went overnight on the marinade & was pleased with the flavors. It was tender and delicious. Will definitely be making it again! Served it with tortillas, black beans, and pan-fried plantains.

I just used juice freshly squeezed from an orange, not sure if that is considered sour or not, but either way the results were amazing. Great served with cilantro lime rice and black beans.
