“I paired my family recipe for pork marinade with a solid preparation process that is quick & easy providing a sweet and savory culinary experience. You’ll have to sit down before you eat this, it’s THAT GOOD. The meat pairs well with mashed potatoes & a plethora of vegetables. For a spiritual experience, put on a thick flour tortilla and top with a Mexican shredded cheese blend.”
