    This is fantastic! I don't usually like pork but this dish is one of my favorites. I make this along side some rice and the Cuban black beans recipe on this site. Yum!!

    I made this last night and the whole family enjoyed it! I must say, though, that you should rename this recipe. There is nothing Cuban about it (besides maybe the black beans)! I am of Cuban descent and this is not Cuban Roast Pork. The ingredients are definitely more Mexican than Cuban. Again, it was delicious, but the name is deceiving....you may want to change it :-)

    It is good, but it needs more heat!
