How to make roasted pork shoulder with orange and mango sauce

  • Cooking 7 h

Peel the onion and cut it into julienne strips. Peel and cut the garlic clove into slices. We peel the mango, remove the meat from the bone and cut it into cubes. We squeeze the juice of three oranges and measure the appropriate amount. We place all the ingredients in the base of the container of our Crock Pot.

We prepare a marinade with the two types of paprika, ground cumin, vinegar, salt and enough extra virgin olive oil to create a paste. Spread the entire surface of the shoulder with the marinade and place it in the Crock Pot. We water with the orange juice and we program seven hours of cooking at low temperature.

If we don't have a Crock Pot, we use a casserole with an oven-safe lid deep enough to accommodate a piece of meat as large as this (a cocotte would be perfect). We cook in the oven at 90ºC for the same amount of time, that is, seven hours.

After the cooking time, let the meat cool before removing and cutting. The texture is so tender that it will come off very juicy. We crush the sauce ingredients, we pass them through a Chinese and let them reduce in a saucepan over low heat, removing the foam that forms on the surface and adjusting the salt point.

At the time of serving we add a little sauce to the shredded meat and accompany it with the garnish that we want: white rice, mashed potatoes, vegetables or, as we have done, we use it to fill some wheat tortillas that we accompany of some lettuce leaves, crispy fried onion and black sesame seeds.
