This is from an authentic Cuban recipe site, although I couldn't tell you how "authentic" it is, considering I have never been to Cuba. Serve with black beans and rice. Authentic or not, however, this recipe is amazing, especially the second day on a Cubano sandwich!

Instructions Checklist
  • Cut pork loin into 3 equal pieces.

  • Turn a slow cooker to Low. Add orange juice, lime juice, lemon juice, and peppercorns, then add onion.

  • Mix garlic, salt, and oregano into a paste and rub all over pork pieces. Place pork in the slow cooker.

  • Cook on Low until pork is slightly pink in the center, 9 to 10 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Pull apart meat with 2 forks and let sit for 1 hour before serving.

Cook's Note:

I chose to use loin instead of tenderloin because the flavor turned out better, and it was more tender.
