Masitas De Cerdo Fritas


My husband made this recently and I love it. Of course, Frank's hot sauce made it even better.

MASITAS DE CERDO FRITAS
Fried Pork Chunks

2 1/2 lb. fresh pork loin
12 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
1 large onion chopped
1/2 cup sour orange juice (or 1/4 cup orange & 1/4 cup lime juice)
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, 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. Brown the pork in the oil until crispy on the outside -- DO NOT overcook! Add onion slices and saute briefly. Garnish with lime wedges. Serve with rice and plantains. You might want to say that it came out dry and that next time, I'm going to slow cook it to make it nice and tender and then brown it in olive oil to make it crispy.
