1 pork shoulder/butt

Mojo mix:

2 ounces lemon juice

20 ounces garlic, chopped

10 ounces white wine

2 ounces olive oil

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F.
  2. Put the pork into a roasting pan and roast it for 8 hours. No salt added.
  3. Remove the pork from the oven to a cutting board. Let rest until cool enough to handle, then shred and add it to a serving bowl.
  4. Puree the lemon juice, garlic, white wine, olive oil, salt and pepper in a blender. Transfer the puree to a small serving bowl.
  5. Serve the pulled pork with the mojo sauce. If desired, the pork can be served with steamed rice, black beans and maduros (plantains).
