This recipe is incredible. Definitely one of my family's favorites so I just have to share it with you!

I got this authentic cuban recipe from my friend and it's one we love to make for Christmas and Easter each year. 

Cuban Pork

4 cups orange juice 
1T ground cumin
2 T dried oregano
1 head garlic 
3 T salt
1 T black pepper
2 onions, cut into rings
6-8 pound boneless pork roast

Sprinkle the ingredients all over the meat and rub in with a spoon to make sure it's coated as much as possible. The garlic cloves can go in the liquid in the bottom of the pan. 
Take a fork and poke holes in the meat. Pour orange juice over the spices. Sprinkle with garlic powder. 

Marinade the meat overnight with the fat side down, The next day when you are ready to cook, flip the roast so the fat side is up. 

Cook at 350 degrees for 45 minutes per pound

Serve pork over beans and rice. This is how I make ours:

2 cans of black beans, drained
2 packages of nitrate free bacon cooked and cut into bite size pieces (optional)

Heat beans and cook the bacon. Serve over rice.

A tip is to make it in a roasting pan with a lid. This holds the moisture in and really is essential to having this recipe turn out well.
