"This is fantastic! I don't usually like pork but this dish is one of my favorites. I make this along side some rice and the Cuban black beans recipe on this site. Yum!!"

"I made this last night and the whole family enjoyed it! I must say, though, that you should rename this recipe. There is nothing Cuban about it (besides maybe the black beans)! I am of Cuban descent and this is not Cuban Roast pork. The ingredients are definitely more Mexican than Cuban. Again, it was delicious, but the name is may want to change it :-)"
