There are many variations of this recipe. My sister Helen, who lived in Cuba during the late 50's got this version from a cook in her employ. It is definitely for garlic lovers.

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, mix together crushed garlic, rosemary, dill, oregano, and red wine. Place roast in a large plastic or glass container, pour wine mixture over meat, and cover. Marinate overnight in refrigerator.

  3. Transfer meat to a Dutch oven. Make eight to ten 1 inch deep cuts into the meat with a sharp knife. Insert a whole peeled garlic clove into each hole. Pour marinade over meat, and cover.
  4. Roast for 35 minutes per pound, or until an instant read thermometer inserted into the center of the roast registers 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

I marinated the roast for only 24 hours; I think it might need at least 48. Also, it was not as flavorful as it could have been, (despite using a total of 16 cloves of garlic) so next time I will definitely salt and pepper the roast before cooking it. Otherwise, the marinade made it pretty good!

I belong to a group that meets every 6 weeks for dinner and converstation. I served this dish. Everyone loved it from the man who likes things with a lot of flavor(the garlic) to a older woman who tends toward very mild tastes. The only thing I did differently is that I cooked the roast in an oven bag and I think that helped keep it juicy

I used a pork shoulder roast. Was hesitant to use so much garlic, even though we love garlic. Use the suggested amount. The house smells wonderful. I just took it out of the oven and UUUM its delicious. GAve the bone to the dog, Mr. Magoo, I think he likes it also. I marinated the roast for 2 days. 2 THUMBS UP !!!!!
