Today’s Menu: Cuban-Style Pulled Pork Roast Sandwich w/ Red Potato Wedges and Mini Carrots

 

Cuban-Style Pulled Pork Roast Sandwich 008
A beautiful Saturday out today, sunny and 63 degrees! But I wasn’t out much to enjoy it, the FLU! I had been taking care of Mom and Dad, early Flu victims, and now it’s been passed to me. I’d rather have it than them though, with their age it’s tougher for them to recover. So after getting some daily chores out of the way it was back to bed for me. Thank goodness for leftovers! Sure didn’t feel like cooking tonight so I warm up that mouth-watering Cuban-Style Pork and sides. Tonight it’s a Cuban-Style Pulled Pork Roast Sandwich w/ Red Potato Wedges and Mini Carrots.
I warmed up all the leftovers from last night. I pulled the Cuban-Style Pork Roast and made a sandwich out of it, using a Kroger Lite Hamburger Wheat Bun. Then for my sides I also reheated the Red Potatoes and Mini Carrots. Had a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink. If you need a great Pork Recipe you have to try this one! No dessert tonight. Hopefully this Flu Bug passes quick. Below is the post from last night with recipe and the link to the recipe website.

 

 

 

 

As I said, another new recipe tonight, Cuban-Style Pork Roast. This one comes from the latest issue of Rachael Ray Every Day Magazine. Several good recipe ideas in it but this one just stood out to me. To make the dish I’ll need; 1 tablespoon Hungarian Paprika, 1 tablespoon Dried Oregano, 1 tablespoon Roasted Ground Cumin, 1 1/2 teaspoons Garlic Powder, 1 5 pound Boneless Pork Shoulder Roast (tied if needed), 1/4 cup fresh Orange Juice, and 2 tablespoons fresh Lime Juice.

 
To prepare it, quite easy. In a large bowl, combine the paprika, oregano, cumin and garlic powdCuban-Style Pork Roast 008er with 1 1/2 tsp. salt and 1 1/2 tsp. pepper. Add the pork and rub all over with the spice mixture. Transfer the pork to a resealable plastic bag, adding any seasoning that didn’t adhere. Add the orange and lime juices. Seal the bag; turn a few times to distribute the mixture. Placed it in a large bowl and refrigerated for about 20 hours, turning once or twice. When ready to cook it I moved the pork and pat it dry. Position a rack in the lower third of the oven; preheated to 325 degrees . In a 5-to 6-quart Dutch oven, arranged the pork, fat side up. Cover and cooked 1 hour. Removed the pot from the oven and turn the pork, fat side down. Covered and continue to cook until the pork is fork- tender, about 1 1/2 hours longer. Increase the oven temperature to 375 degrees . Uncovered the pot, turn the pork, fat side up, and continue to cook, basting occasionally, until the top began to brown and sizzle, about 35 minutes. Transferred the pork to a platter and let rest 10 to 20 minutes. Discarded the excess fat from the pot. Added 1/3 cup water and bring to a simmer, scraping up any browned bits, to make the sauce. Carved the pork and served with the sauce. We got a winner, winner Pork dinner! Came out so moist and tender with an incredible flavor. The Spices combined with Orange Juice and Lime Juice makes the Pork Roast Rock! As last night we got us another “Keeper Recipe”.
