here is another Cuban signature meal all dolled up "Paleo Style"
  • Ingredients:
  • 2 pork tenderloins (1 package about 2-2.5 lbs)
  • 1 big yellow onion, sliced
  • 6 cloves of garlic, peeled and minced
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 1 large orange, juiced and zested (I ran out of oranges so I used a grapefruit and it was equally yummy)
  • 2 cups of vegetable broth
  • 1.5 tablespoons of oregano
  • 1 teaspoon of cumin
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Place the pork in the bottom of the crock pot.
  2. Add dry ingredients (cumin, oregano, salt and pepper) and feel free to massage the ingredients into the pork so they can better absorb the spices.
  3. Squeeze the lime and orange (or grapefruit). Make sure you add plenty of the citrus zest too! It adds an amazing punch of flavor.
  4. Add the minced garlic and then our the chicken broth over all the pork and ingredients.
  5. Cook on low for 8-10 hours or on high for 6-7 hours.
