Transforming Strength Cuban Mojo Pork Recipe

Cuban Mojo Pork is a nutritious and healthy recipe recommended by Personal Trainer & Nutrition Coach Matt Hartsky.


1 bone-in pork shoulder (about 4 pounds) 

11/2 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoon ground black pepper

3/4 cup orange juice

1/2 cup lime juice

1 tablespoon olive oil

8 cloves garlic, chopped finely

2 teaspoons dried oregano

2 teaspoons ground cumin

1/4 cup chopped cilantro (lightly packed)


  • Using a paring knife, make a few slits all over the surface of the pork. 
  • To the slow cooker, add the rest of the ingredients. Mix to combine. 
  • Place the pork in the slow cooker and cook on high for 5 – 6 hours or on low for 8 – 10 hours. 
  • The pork should be tender and almost falling of the bone! Carefully remove it from the slow cooker and place it onto an aluminum foil lined baking sheet.
  • Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for about 15 to 20 minutes or until browned. 
  • Remove from the oven and let it rest for 10 minutes before serving. You will be able to shred the meat with a couple of forks, yes, it will be that tender!
  • Serve with the remaining juices from the slow cooker
