ROAST PORK WITH BLACK BEANS AND YELLOW RICE
(Serves 4 with leftovers)
4-5 pound boston butt
1. Preheat oven to 350. Generously season meat with adobo seasoning. Place in a dutch oven (or other large pot w/ lid) along with the mojo criollo.
2. Cover and cook per package directions on meat. I think it is 22-26 minutes per pound.
Cook per package directions, but substitute mojo criollo for half the water. The rice already has wonderful flavor, but using 1/2 water and 1/2 mojo gives it a great kick!
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoon cumin
2 bay leaves
1/4- 1/2 cup mojo criollo
In a medium sauce pan over medium heat, saute onions in olive oil for about 10 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 2 minutes more. Add cumin, beans, bay leaves and mojo criollo. Simmer for about 10 minutes, until beans are soft.
Oh and don't forget the Crystal Hot sauce! No pseudo-Cuban meal is complete without it!
Make this meal and your family will love you (and me) for it!
