Slow Cooker Cuban Mojo Pork

Traditionally made from bitter oranges, garlic and olive oil, mojo is a bright and punchy Cuban sauce. Swapping in regular oranges and limes handily mimics that sour flavour. Slow cooking helps the meat fall apart, so it’s easy to shred using two forks. Use for sandwiches, taco fillings, or dish up with rice and beans.


Ingredients
4 lbs (1.8 kg)
boneless pork shoulder or pork butt roast
3 tbsp
12 tsp each
sea salt and fresh ground black pepper
2
large oranges, divided
2
limes, divided
3 tbsp
olive oil

Toppings (optional): Roasted Garlic Aioli, fresh cilantro, sliced avocado, lime wedges

Preparation
  1. Using the tip of a knife, make a few slits over the top of the roast (fat cap). Season roast with marinade mix, salt, and pepper. Place fat-side up in a slow cooker.
  2. Using a Y-peeler, peel strips from 1 orange and lime; add to slow cooker. Squeeze in 34 cup juice from oranges and 12 cup juice from limes. Drizzle with oil. 
  3. Using your hands, turn roast a few times to coat.
  4. Cover; cook on high for 5-6 hours or until fork tender.
  5. To crisp top, carefully remove pork from slow cooker. Place on a Sheet Pan lined with a Sheet Pan Liner. Bake in preheated 400 °F until browned, 10-15 min.
  6.  Let rest 10 min, then slice or shred meat. Serve with juices from the slow cooker and toppings, if desired.
Tips

Italian Seasoning is a good swap. The flavour profile is slightly different – it’s less citrussy – but there are added notes of basil and mint. Consider adding 2 tbsp more lime juice if using Italian Seasoning.

If you have extra time, marinate roast in the refrigerate up to 4 hours before cooking.

Wrap up leftovers in tacos or use as a pizza topping. Excellent tossed into Mac & Cheese or Fettucine Alfredo.

Serve with 1 cup rice and 1 cup grilled, roasted, or steamed veggies. This roast loves green beans!
