My neighbor lent me her Estefan Kitchen Cuban cookbook by Emilio and Gloria Estefan. It is always so cool to me to learn the customary differences between cuisines. I was looking for a pork marinade for pork tacos. I found a steal in the Mojo Criollo recipe. They use this recipe in many of their dishes like the pork for Cuban Sandwiches. I definitely plan on trying that out too!
10 to 12 garlic cloves
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon dried oregano
3/4 cup naranja agria (sour orange) - you can substitute 2 parts lemon juice with 1 part orange juice.
1/4 cup olive oil
In batches of 6 cloves, peel and mash the garlic using a mortar and pestle (or crush in a garlic press).
In a small bowl, combine the mashed garlic with the salt, pepper and oregano.
Stir in the naranja agria juice and olive oil.
