These are awesome! Especially when I was able to use Maldonado's pernil (roast pork) that she cooked last Sunday, she is new here in So Fl she still cooks the authentic Puerto Rican way with the lime, lemon and sour oranges, it is a miracle that there was anything leftover. Here is the sandwich using her pernil. A great combination of flavors! Found on Everyday Food, 06/07.
