Growing up in south Florida , there was never a shortage of delicious food from all cultures. I fell in love with Cuban food as a child. The flavors made my tastebuds do a whole song and dance. The seasonings they used for pork and chicken were just absolutely delicious to me, and mojo pork will always be one of my favorite Cuban dishes. I wanted to bring this dish to your kitchen , in a simplified way. This dish uses a slow cooker so that you can set it and forget it , yet is still rich in flavor. Pair this with black beans and rice and salad , and voila dinner is served.
