Recipe: Cilantro Lime Oven Roasted Pork Shoulder

Cilantro Lime Pork Shoulder

This oven roasted pork shoulder recipe turned out very juicy, tender and flavorful.  I marinated it for 24 hours in fresh garlic, cilantro and lots of lime juice.  One can serve the pork as a single dinner if hosting a large dinner party.  If one has leftovers it can be transformed into many great dishes for later in the week such as pork sliders, cubans, and/or tacos for instance.
