Roast Pork & A Cuban Pork Sandwich

1 8lb. pork shoulder picnic
Sour orange
3-4 bay leaves
5-6 whole cloves of garlic

Preheat oven to 300 degrees

Make 5-6 big slits in the pork roast with a knife so you can push salt and garlic cloves down in them. Pour salt down in each slit and then push a garlic cloves down on top of the salt.

Pour sour orange all over the roast and rub with more salt. When you think you have put too much salt on it, ADD MORE!!!! Stick 3 or 4 bay leaves on the top.

Now place the roast on a rack, fat side down.

Stick a meat thermometer in it and slow roast 5-6 hours until thermometer reads 170 degrees.

It should look like this.

Now take a piece of the pork skin and eat it!!!! Ummmm
The Cubans call it the "Chicharon"
It's falling off the bone tender!!!

To make the sandwich you take some nice pieces of meat, and cut it up like this.

Add some diced onion to it, and sprinkle some MOJO on top.

Place it on a nice piece of Cuban bread, and there you have it.

We make a tunnel in the Cuban bread by taking some of the dough out before we put the pork and onions in it.

Awesome Cuban Sandwich Baby!!!!!!!!

Now go get you a pork shoulder and make one!!!!!

Of course the pork is very good with black beans and white rice, yellow rice, yuca(cassava), plantains, moros, or just by itself. And, for my Southern family & friends, it makes a damn good BBQ Pork Sandwich. Don't worry Nana I saved you some:)
