DIRECTIONS

  • The day before, rub the adobo powder into the pork all over. Cover and place in the fridge overnight to marinate.
  • Preheat the over to 350 degress.
  • The objective is to have the whole plantain centred in the roll of pork. If the cut of meat is solid at one end, slice a hole through so that the plantain can be shoved in and lined up in the center of the cut. Roll and tie. Place in a roasting tray and roast, covered loosely with foil, for about an hour.
  • Uncover and allow the roast to brown for a further 30-40 minutes, depending on how well done you like your pork. Don't overcook it or the meat will become dry. (A meat thermometer shoulde read 170 degrees when it is done).
  • Meanwhile, as the meat is cooking, make the sauce. Place the hot pepper, peppercorns, garlic and salt in a blender and blend the ingredients until it forms a puree. Pour in lime juice, vinegar and oil and blend again.
  • Remove pork from teh oven and allow to stand for 10 minutes before carving. Serve with ajili-mojili sauce.
