Kick Butt Pork! I wasn't going to review this until I read other reviews that weren't kind and they didn't follow the instructions. Yes, pork loin is going to be dry. You need the fat/collagen in the pork shoulder to keep it moist and make it fall apart scrumptious. I did use a bone-in roast and didn't tie it, and I did sear it before putting in the oven. I marinated it exactly as told to for about 36 hours. If you want boring pork, do not cook this. It is tangy, that is what the citrus is about. It is earthy, that's what the spices were for. I can't compare it to authentic Cuban pork because it's been 20 years since I had any, but I can't wait to make the medianoche sandwiches tomorrow. Serve with black beans and rice, make a taco or burrito.. whatever you want to do with this, you can't go wrong. If you like simple flavors, this is not for you!
