  • 3 lbs boneless pork shoulder
Pork marinade:
  • 3 medium sized shallots
  • 6 small garlic cloves
  • 2 red chili peppers remove seeds (fresno chili peppers)
  • 1 1/2 cup cilantro (alt. flat parsley)
  • 1 tsp ground coriander powder
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 whole lime juice
  • 2 tsp coarse sea salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
Day of cooking:
  • 1 whole California fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 1/2 tsp coarse sea salt
  1. A night before: Chop shallots, garlic cloves, red chili peppers, and cilantro. Combine all ingredients listed under “pork marinade”. Combine the marinade with boneless pork loin. Seal in a large zip lock bag and marinate overnight in the fridge.

  2. Day of cooking: Preheat oven to 375F or 400F. Slightly drip off the marinade and brown the meat with 1 tbsp ghee clarified butter over stovetop. When both sides of the pork are sealed in light golden brown, turn off the heat. Add one whole California orange juice, ½ tsp coarse sea salt, and the remaining liquid and marinade in the zip lock bag.

  3. Cover the dutch oven with a lid and bake 30 minutes total - 1st side 20 mins, flip side 10 mins. Or until the internal temperature reaches 145F. 

  4. If there’s a lot of liquid left in the dutch oven, reduce it over medium-high heat for 2-3 mins or thicken it with arrowroot/sweet potato powder/flour. Pour the sauce over roasted pork.
