Ingredients

  • 7 pounds fresh leg of pork
  • 2 plantain leaves
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 3 tablespoons black pepper
  • 8 cloves garlic (Crushed)
  • 3 teaspoons oregano
  • 2 teaspoons cumin (Optional)
  • 1 lime
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup guava marmalade
  • 1/2 cup dijon mustard
  • 1 cup liquid from roasted pork
  • 1/4 cup cilantro (or Parsley, Finely Chopped)

Directions

  1. 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. With a knife, separate and remove the outer layer of fat (and skin if present) from the pork. Stir together dry adobe rub ingredients and spread over the surface of the pork. Wrap generously in plaintain leaves. (The plaintain leaves will help maintain the pork's moisture.) Cover with aluminum foil; place on a rack in a roasting pan and then in the oven.
  2. 2Roast for 2 1/2-3 hours or until internal temperture of the pork is 145 degrees F. Remove from the oven; do not remove foil and allow pork to sit for 10 minutes before slicing.
  3. 3Meanwhile, cut a small piece from the foil and plaintain leaf to allow about 1 cup of the meat juices to drain out onto the roasting pan. Save the juices to mix with the ingredients for the sauce. Prepare the sauce while allowing the pork to sit. Slice for serving.
  4. 4In a heavy skillet, mix the marmalade, mustard and pork liquid. Heat until sauce begins to boil, then reduce to low while stirring frequently. Add water or red wine if sauce becomes too thick. Stir in cilantro. Serve with roasted pork.
