Pernil al Horno (pork shoulder)

Puerto Rico Christmas

In the Puerto Rican countryside, you can often find roadside stands where whole “lechones” are roasted and plates of the succulent pork are sold to passers-by. “Pernil al horno” is the popular homemade version. Usually, “el pernil” gets marinated in a flavorful mixture of garlic, oregano and vinegar and then slowly roasted until the meat is almost falling apart.
