      Very good recipe. Easily adaptable for leftover pork shoulder (I just added it in the final stir). At the last minute I realized that I was out of gandules, so used pink beans. I did miss the earthiness of the gandule so try to use that. I liked the idea of adding the banana leaf on top for the final simmer, nice touch.

      Excellent! I used a premade pernil from the supermarket, added a bit more sofrito than the recipe called for and bought yellow Spanish rice. IT WAS FAB !
