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.
