    The fresh squeezed OJ & Lime + Zest from both + Oregano + Cumin make a stupendous roux for pork. Used Dutch Oven in stove on 300 degrees for 5 hours ( pork roast at 200 degrees & perfect for pull/shredding vs Crock Pot ). Made Cuban Sofrito as a sauce for the pork. Black Beans & Rice the final medley. Crowd pleaser menu 👍🏼💯

    this is a great dish! i uses equal parts lime and orange juice which worked out well. i would say you only need 1/2 of the recommended oil.
    i used it as a base for leftover smoked chicken. no pork. and i reduced liquid. then added a small amount of corn starch to thicken. finally about a tablespoon of sugar. to cut tartness. served over rice. next time i will follow recipe using pork.

    I’m picky with my cooking. I cooked 6 hrs on an Instant Pot high heat slow cooker setting. The meat was rather dry even with intermittent basting. It needs a touch less citrus and definitely some heat/spice. Would recommend cooking 8hrs and/or doing a marinade before hand.

    I do not like cilantro so I removed it from the recipe, but it was still a huge hit! The sauce didn't thicken up much with the suggested amount of cornstarch but it was still delicious
