Cuban pork...


I thought I posted this before, but if not...here it is:

Fresh ham or Boston Butt

Marinate overnight in a large plastic bag or Tupperware:
Rub the meat with olive oil, then salt and pepper; put in bag and add a slice of onion and 3-4 cloves of garlic then add one bottle of Goya Citrus Marinade.

Conventional oven: place everything from the bag into a pan and bake covered for 5-7 hours at 300 degrees (I have never baked mine).

Crock Pot: place all of the ingredients into the crock pot and cook on medium for about 7 hours. Maybe longer, if using a large butt (snicker).

The meat should fall off the bone.

Remove from pan and cool enough to remove the fat from the meat. I have used two forks to pull the pork apart, then put it back into the juices to keep the meat moist.
 
Serve with coleslaw. Bask in the rave reviews...
