Roated pork shoulder in La Caja China roasting box.

It is known that Cubans simply love the roasted pig and we are happy to have such great connection with La Caja China roasters and Cuba, so we can taste the special difference between the classic pig roast and lechon asado.

The main star is the use of sauce.

Cubans make a special sauce called mojo criollo, their very popular pig marinade. It is very easy to do if you want to serve a Cuban-flavored lechon asado to your loved ones and friends!

Ingredients

2 onions, sliced into rings
1 tablespoon black pepper
3 tablespoons salt
2 heads garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons dried oregano
1 tablespoon ground cumin

4 kilograms boneless pork blade roast (shoulder part)
salt

Cooking Instructions

Create your mojo criollo marinade: mix all the sauce ingredients in a bowl and set it aside for about 10 minutes. It is best to use an injector to make marinating easier for your pork shoulder. Strain half of the sauce that you made earlier. Pour the solids back into the other half of the sauce. You will use that for later.

Now dip the injector into the strained sauce and fill it up then use the injector on the pork shoulder. Repeat this process in all areas until you have used up all the strained marinade.

Put the pork in a clean container and rub the meat with salt. Pour the rest of the marinade onto the pork and let it get soaked. Put it in the fridge and let it stay there overnight. For best results, marinate it for 24 hours.

The following day, remove the meat from the marinade and transfer the mojo criollo to a saucepan. Add two onions (sliced into rings) and let the mixture boil for about two minutes. Once done, allow it to cool down. Process the sauce in a blender and create a smooth puree.

Roasting

Set up your charcoal grill and set your meat on the grill with the skin side up. Cook it for a total of 2 and half hours and only turn it to the other side once it is already halfway done. The desired internal temperature is around 70 degrees Celsius.

Well there you have your own Cuban pig roast! For best results always use fresh pork meat and make sure you buy it from your butcher to get the best possible taste. And use the original roasting box, if you don't have one, order TODAY!
