DIRECTIONS

  • Using a small knife, make 1-inch long incisions in the skin of the pork shoulder about 2 inches apart.
  • Combine 3 Tbs of the lime juice, garlic, salt, pepper and oregano in a small bowl.
  • Rub this mixture into the slashes and along the underside of the pork.
  • Combine the remaining lime juice, vinegar, grapefruit juice, orange juice, and adobo seasoning in a bowl large enough to hold the meat.
  • Add the pork, skin side up.
  • Cover and refrigerate overnight, turning occasionally.
  • Remove from the refrigerator an hour before cooking.
  • To cook, preheat oven to 300ºF.
  • Transfer the pork and its marinade to a roasting pan.
  • Cover the pan with a lid or aluminum foil and roast until very tender, about 5 hours.
  • Let cool slightly in the liquid, then transfer the pork to a cutting board and discard the skin and excess fat.
  • Slice and serve.
