Slow Cooker Cuban Mojo Pork made with citrus, garlic, oregano and cumin takes almost no prep time and makes a fantastic, flavorful meal your family will love any night of the week!
Moderate Cooker Cuban Mojo Pork is a contort on the ordinary pulled pork the vast majority love making in their lethargic cookers. One of our #1 approaches to cook pulled pork is to placed it in the lethargic cooker dry with only Hawaiian ocean salt and a touch of Worcestershire sauce for 24 hours on low to make the most delicate Hawaiian Luau Pulled Pork ever.
This Slow Cooker Cuban Mojo Pork is a particularly tasty dish that we normally wind up making it in huge amounts (fun truth I have 4 lethargic cookers… that’s right, completely serious) and utilizing the extras for EVERYTHING. We eat it with sandwiches, make it into tacos, shred it into quesadillas, top it over fried eggs and even add it to soups in the colder time of year.
Being a sluggish cooker feast here and there you’ll need to simply make this dinner short-term or during food planning times and save it for some other time. Here it is fit to be frozen for some other time. Reveal to me you wouldn’t be glad to open up your cooler and see this hanging tight for you for supper.
