When you want a dish that’s sure to impress, serve up this Cuban Braised Pork with Mojo Sauce. It’s exceptionally tender and perfectly seasoned. The mojo sauce is phenomenal.
I think our Gourmet Club has officially turned into a Global Adventure Club.
I’m sure we’ll think of a more catchy title than that, but first things first.
For the past six years, Hubby and I have done this foodie group with food obsessed friends. I won’t rave on, as I’ve already gabbed about the awesomeness of Gourmet Club here and here. Recipes included 🙂
Anyways. Our frou frou foodie dinners have evolved into eating our way around the world…
We still put on our [totally persnickety] chef’s hats for the fun of it. But now our jam is culturally themed dinners.
You go, Internet. It’s ridiculous fun replicating dishes from global cooks.
The food is delish, the adventure is a thrill, and the friendships are incredible.
Not to mention there’s some serious sommelier action going on, which doesn’t hurt at all 🙂
So obvi where I’m taking y’all with this.
Our last group dinner was all-out Cuban. We did everything from Papas Rellenas (fried stuffed potatoes?!) to Arroz con Leche. Yuuummmmm. Still salivating.
I made this tasty Cuban Braised Pork with Mojo Sauce. It was so tender, the meat would have fallen right off the bone had there been any bones.
It’s basically a Cuban version of pulled pork, immersed in a bright citrus sauce that’s knockout good.
Have no fear with the Mojo. It’s surprisingly easy.
Once you’ve thrown all the ingredients into the blender, it’s good to go. The braised pork is so simple, it’s hard to believe how something so unfussy could turn out that flavorful.
The whole family will dance for this dish. Pair it with rice or potatoes for a delicious meal.
I have to say it.
Get your mojo on.Print
