Cuban Mojo Pork Roast
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. This style is usually done with a bone in pork shoulder roast, but can also be made with a boneless one. Delicious either way!! The more sour the oranges are, the more traditional is the taste.
1/2 cup olive oil
Combine oil, zests and juices in a bowl. Finely dice the cilantro, mint, garlic and pepper. Add to the bowl along with oregano, cumin, salt and pepper. Place the roast in the mixture, coating it on all sides. Cover, refrigerate several hours or overnight. When ready to roast it, preheat oven to 425 degrees. Remove meat from the marinade and place it on a rack in a baking pan. Turn oven down to 375 degrees and roast for about 1 - 1 1/2 hours, or until it reaches 160-165 degrees, basting with the marinade while roasting. Remove from oven, stand about 10 - 15 minutes, carve.
