Recipe type: Main dish
Ingredients
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1½ teaspoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 (4 pound) pork shoulder roast
Instructions
  1. Grind garlic, salt, black pepper, cumin, oregano, and coriander into a paste using a mortar and pestle.
  2. Transfer half of the garlic and spice paste to a bowl; add lime juice, orange juice, olive oil, and vinegar. Beat the mixture with a whisk until smooth.
  3. Cut several inch-long, deep slits into the fatty side of the pork roast. Rub the reserved garlic paste into the slits.
  4. Put rubbed roast into a gallon-size resealable plastic bag. Pour the liquid mixture over the roast, squeeze as much air from the bag as possible and seal; refrigerate, turning occasionally, 8 hours to overnight.
  5. Remove pork roast from refrigerator, put into a roasting pan, and let warm at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  6. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  7. Roast pork in preheated oven for 30 minutes, reduce heat to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C), and continue cooking until pork is no longer pink in the center, about 2 hours more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 170 degrees F (75 degrees C).
