“Masitas De Cerdo”

These chunks of pork are traditionally made with pork shoulder and are fried. They are similar to carnitas, the braised pork cubes found on Mexican menus.

1 1/2 pounds boneless pork loin, cut into 1-inch cubes
6 garlic cloves, crushed
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon dry oregano
1/2 cup sour orange juice (or use 1/4 cup orange
    juice and 1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 cup olive oil

Place pork cubes in a self-sealing plastic bag; mix together remaining ingredients and pour over pork cubes; seal bag and refrigerate overnight.

Remove pork from marinade, discarding marinade, and place pork cubes in a shallow baking pan. Roast at 350 degrees F for 25 to 30 minutes, until pork is tender. Remove to serving platter and serve hot.

Serves 6.
