'Eat and Greet': Roasted Pork

With ABC News' "Eat and Greet," you can play video in your kitchen and have the best chefs in the country teach you how to make their recipes. You can even stop and start the video for step-by-step instructions.

On this week's "Eat and Greet," ABCNews' Katrina Szish went inside the kitchen of the hot Times Square District Cuban restaurant Havana Central to bring you executive chef Stanley Licairac's recipe for roasted pork.

You can find that recipe below.


10 pounds pork shoulder

½ cup garlic, whole cloves, peeled

¾ tsp garlic, granulated (garlic powder)

1½ tsp garlic, minced

¼ cup olives -- Manzanilla

½ cup diced pimento

1½ tsp oregano

½ tsp black pepper

2½ tsp salt

½ cup white vinegar

1/3 cup fresh lime juice

1/3 cup onions, thinly sliced

1 cup olive oil


Mix all ingredients (except pork) in a separate bowl for marinade.

Take 10 pounds pork shoulder, make ½ inch by 1 inch deep cuts in meat -- as many as possible. Place meat in nonreactive bowl.

Take whole garlic cloves, olives, and pimentos from marinade, and put them inside each cut in the meat.

Take the remaining marinade and pour over and rub the meat. Let marinate for four hours.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Place in large roasting pan and cook for 2½ hours.

Cook 1½ hours covered with aluminum foil.

Cook last hour without foil (approximately 35 minutes per pound).

Let sit for approximately 30 minutes before carving.

Serve with a side of rice.

Yield: 8-10 portions
