DIRECTIONS

  • In a small bowl, combine the oil, garlic, thyme, oregano, pepper, and salt.
  • Rub the garlic mixture all over the pork.
  • Place the pork in a Dutch oven just large enough to hold it snugly, cover with aluminum foil and then the lid and refrigerate overnight, or up to 24 hours.
  • Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  • Remove the aluminum foil from the Dutch oven, replace the lid and bake for 30 minutes.
  • Reduce the oven temperature to 375°FF and bake for 1 hour more, basting twice with the pan juices.
  • Uncover, baste again and bake, uncovered, for 20 to 30 minutes more, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 155-165°F.
  • Remove the pork from the oven, cover and let rest for 1 hour to develop the flavors.
  • Reheat in a 375°F oven for about 20 minutes and serve.
