Mojo Cuban Pulled Pork and Black Beans

This recipe actually takes a lot of prep and cooking (to me anyway) but it tastes great.


2 lb Pork shoulder roast
1/4 cup Fresh orange juice
1/4 cup Fresh lime juice
10 Garlic cloves, peeled
1 Red onion
1 Bunch of fresh cilantro
1/4 cup Chicken broth
1 t vegetable oil
4 cans of Black beans, drained and rinsed, then drained again (you can also make it from scratch)

  1. In a food processor, put cilantro, garlic, half of the lime juice and onion.  Chop until all is a course liquid.  Set aside.
  2. Generously apply salt, pepper, oregano and cumin to the roast.
  3. Sear the pork on both sides.
  4. Pour the vegetable oil into the bottom of a slow cooker.
  5. Place the seared roast into the slow cooker.
  6. Pour in the chicken broth, the other half of the lime juice and orange juice.
  7. Cover and cook on high until the roast shreds easily with a fork (approx. 5 to 6 hours).
  8. Remove the roast from the slow cooker, and shred the meat using two forks.
  9. Return the shredded pork to the slow cooker and stir.
  10. Add portions of the pulled pork and juices to a foil packets. Top each packet with some of the liquid you set aside from the food processor, and black beans. Fold packets to cover.
  11. Grill the foil packets for 15 minutes or until beans are heated through.  You can also bake them at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.
  12. Serve alone or with rice and plantains for a more complete Cuban meal!
