Masitas de Puerco (twice cooked pork)

2-1/2 lb. fresh pork loin or pork butt
12 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
1 large onion chopped
1/2 cup sour orange juice (or 1/4 cup unsweetened orange juice & 1/4 cup lime juice) or Mojo sauce
2 cups water
1 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 fresh onion sliced into rings
lime wedges
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon cumin


Cut pork into 2 inch chunks. To prepare marinade: mix together garlic, chopped onion, orange juice or mojo sauce, 1/2 cup olive oil, oregano, cumin and salt. Pour over pork chunks and marinate for at least 3 hours or overnight in the refrigerator.

Remove meat from marinade. Place in pot with two cups of water and 1/2 cup olive oil. Simmer, uncovered until all water boils away -- about 30 to 45 minutes. Or cook in a pressure cooker for 20 minutes.

Have the BGE at 400 degrees at the dome and in a wok or CI DO put about 1 inch of oil. Quickly brown the pork in the oil until crispy on the outside -- DO NOT overcook! Add onion slices the last few minutes and saute briefly. Garnish with lime wedges. Serve with black beans & white rice.
