Pincho Moruno is a Moorish inspired dish that has been improved (I think) by the Spaniards. It can be used with lamb or pork. I suppose you could do chicken or beef also but have never tried it with them. Recipe can be doubled, tripled, whatever without a problem.
This is the perfect recipe for those who love the flavors of a classic Cuban pork roast but are cooking in small quantities. Typical of Cuban fare, these are full of tropical flavors but not spicy. The garlic and lime pair beautifully in a fragrant marinade. Though you can marinade as briefly as an hour, for best results let the pork soak up to 6-8 hours. (Don't marinade overnight as the citrus cooks the pork over longer periods). Serve these with my Almost Fried Plantains #134349 for a delightful healthy meal.
Throw it in the crock pot on New Year's Eve before you go out, and dinner the next day will be ready; all you have to do is fix the mashed potatoes. Slow, low cooking makes a roast that is very tender. Delicious!! I used to manage a doctor's office, and our Blue Cross rep told me that her family made this every year for New Year's.
