Caribbean Recipes: What is Pork Mojo?
Mojo sauce is a spicy and citrusy condiment and marinade popular in the Caribbean cuisine, especially in Cuba. It is most frequently used to make mojo potatoes, but meat dishes marinated in mojo sauce are more common in the United States.
Mojo pork is the most-popular meat dish featuring mojo sauce in Cuba, where a whole pig is often marinated in the sauce and roasted outdoors. Luckily, the recipe works just as well when scaled down to make a 3-to-5 lb. mojo pork roast in the oven.
The marinade is simply olive oil, garlic, oregano, cumin, and citrus, yet it’s far more than the sum of its parts. This stuff tastes good enough to build an entire cuisine on and can be used in everything from tacos to ribs.
