Chef Fiona added some Cuban flair to the Berkeley stop by cooking up some of her Mojo Braised Pork Shoulder. When making this dish at home, try pairing it with Dreaming Tree Crush.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander
  • 1 pinch cayenne
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 bottle beer (preferably Mexican lager)
  • 8 cloves garlic (crushed)
  • 1 ginger (large thumb, peeled and thin sliced)
  • 1 white onion (chopped)
  • 1/2 bunch oregano leaves (chopped)
  • 1 bunch cilantro (chopped including stems)
  • 1 jalapeno chilies (seeds removed, chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 orange
  • 1 lime
  • 1 1/2 cups orange juice
  • 1 cup lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • salt
  • pepper
  • pork shoulder

Directions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 325.
  2. Season pork on all sides with spice rub. Over medium heat and using canola oil, brown all sides of meat. Place in an oven safe pan, with high sides so the pork fits in one layer but is not cramped.
  3. Deglaze pan with beer, scraping up any bits stuck to the bottom of pan, pour over pork.
  4. Add all remaining ingredients to the pan and cover with parchment paper and wrap with foil.
  5. Braise pork in oven for 3-4 hours, turning meat once an hour. Meat is done when a fork easily pierced the meat and it falls apart. Let the meat rest for about 20 minutes.
  6. Remove the meat from the liquid, skim the fat off the top of the braising liquid, If the sauce is thin reduce to desired consistency and flavor, season to taste.
  7. Break the pork into chunks or shred, pour the sauce over the pork and serve.
  8. Delicious with white rice, black beans and sweet plantains (if you can find them).

I usually like to find recipes with only a few ingredients for weeknights meals, but this one is easy and pretty much uses things you have in your kitchen. The meat was moist and the sauce was so flavorful and delicious!! Loved this and my kids liked it too. Not too spicy for them.
