Tuesday’s Cupful: Background on Pernil Pork

Well-seasoned Latin American fare

Look for several versions of this dish on the internet.  Most recipes link this meal item to Puerto Rico but you’ll also discover more than a few recipes that are Cuban in origin.  Warm seasonings, such as chili powder, ground cayenne pepper, and ground cumin, work well to enhance the pork shoulder’s natural flavors.  Minty oregano and coriander serve to round out a yummy recipe.  Meanwhile, a slow roasting time is paramount in producing tasty and tender cuts of meat.
