Slow Cooked Cuban Pork – Lechon Asado

88

Slow cooked Cuban pork, in Spanish known as Lechon Asado, is usually roasted over hot coals or in a high heat oven. But sometimes, when the craving hits and time is of the essence, I reach to my crock pot to satisfy the flavors of my Cuban heritage. I am a a Mizkan Ambassador and this yumtastic recipe has been sponsored. Check out the variety of Holland House cooking wines and vinegars, including the Champagne Vinegar I used for this Slow Cooked Cuban Pork recipe.

Pork shoulder, size depending on your crock pot

Lots of garlic, crushed (I used 6-8 cloves for this, but have been known to use upwards of 20, depending on size of pork)

Orange juice concentrate, 2-3 scoops

1 lime, juiced

2-3 tablespoons Mizkan Champagne Vinegar

Cumin, to taste (This spice is crucial for the flavor of the lechon. Don’t go crazy, but don’t skimp on it either)
