Cuban Mojo Recipe For Lechon (Pork)
This is one of my favorite marinades EVER. Pork is very important to the Cuban cuisine, and one of the tastiest ways to prepare pork is with mojo criollo -- a seasoned marinade with a fusion of fresh citrus fruit, garlic, cumin, and oregano. My gosh, I am drooling!
(O-M-G. Someone please invite me to a Cuban party ASAP!)
The mojo is a essential for making the pork so-damn-good. Mojo isn't only for the pork, though. You can poor, drench, and soak whatever meat you want -- from chicken to fish. Oh, you can even use mojo for vegetables and salads!

Making The Mojo

What You'll Need:

3 peeled garlic cloves (minced & crushed)
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 cup fresh orange juice
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1 cup Spanish olive oil

How to Make It:

1) Mix all marinade ingredients in a bowl and let sit for 30 minutes.
