Slow Cooker Puerto Rican Style Pork (Pernil)
1 (3 pound) pork loin roast (with bone)
4 cloves garlic
1 large onion, quartered
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons ground black pepper
3 tablespoons Mojo
1/2 can Salsa Verde
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
Place the garlic, onion, oregano, cumin, salt, and pepper into a blender. Pour in the salsa verde, Mojo, and vinegar. Puree until smooth. Cut a few slits in the roast and stuff with puree. Spread the balance all over the pork loin, and place into a slow cooker.
Cook on high until the pork is fork tender, 5 - 6 hours. The pork will fall off the bone in chunks. Serve with Spanish rice smothered with a health ladle of that flavorful broth. This recipe is second best to a traditional "Puerto Rican Pernil". My first mother in law prepared hers where the main ingredients were tons of garlic, Adobo, oregano, white vinegar, and onions.
