The way to completing a Cuban pig roast (besides utilizing a “Caja Asadora” or Roasting Box) is the marinade. The flavors this formula calls for are classic Caribbean admission, normal from Puerto Rico all through the islands, and into Cuba. They incorporate garlic, sour orange (or “Naranja agria” in Spanish), salt, black peppercorns, and oregano. Powerless to discover sour orange, a two to one blend of orange and lemon juice can be used. For an entire roast pig, use four or five large heads of garlic (70 to 80 cloves).

For every ten cloves include about ½ teaspoon of salt and black pepper and oregano to taste. Use a mortar and pestle to squash the blend into glue and scoop into a different bowl. Proceed with this method until all the garlic cloves are gone, at that point blend in around one quart of sour orange juice. This sum is wanted to grill the entire pig. It is desirable over salt water the hog the night before your pig roast. This will guarantee that the hog does not dry out while cooking in your Caja China box. Brining is mostly covering the pig in a fluid arrangement that is one-gallon water to one-container salt, and enables it to sit medium-term.

For Latin Touch occasions, we infuse the marinade (particularly in the pork shoulders and pork butt) preceding brining, enabling the marinade more opportunity to do something unusual. While placing the entire pig onto the Cajun Microwave otherwise known as Caja China Roasting Box rack you can likewise use a dry mojo rub on the skin before cooking. If available, you can include split sour oranges along the ribs and hole too. Three to four hours later (in the wake of flipping the pig for the last 30-45 minutes) you can authoritatively consider yourself a privileged Cuban. You have recently arranged a classic dish going back ages, and because you did it in a Caja China (or La Caja China) box, it didn’t take 8 hours to do it! Present with “moro” (white rice and black beans) and yucca and you will have the ideal side dishes for your classic Caja China Cuban pig roast. A choice of menus can be seen here.
