Mojo Cuban pork - cubanos - cook with PICS 🐷🇨🇺

Hey folks. So I watched the movie Chef the other week for the first time and then really wanted to eat some Cuban pork. And specifically a cubanos sandwich.

So I got myself 3.6kg of boneless pork shoulder, made the mojo marinade and bathed the pork in it for 24hrs, then smoked it with a chunk of cherry wood.

220c for 30mins. Then 180c for approx 3hrs. Pulled at 73c so it was sliceable. 

I could not believe how tasty this was. The marinade is exceptional. 

This is the method I followed

I was concerned that it may be dry if sliceable rather than pulled but it was so juicy. 

I ate it as a roast with roast potatoes and veg the first time, then make sandwiches the next few times using the cubanos method from here. And I think it actually is the best sandwich I’ve ever had. 

Method for the sandwich:
