How To: Cook pernil, a Puerto Rican pork roast

Cook pernil, a Puerto Rican pork roast

In this how to video Mark Bittman, from the New York Times, roasts a pork shoulder with a dry rub. This pork dish is more commonly known in Puerto Rico as pernil. Grab a fresh cut of pork shoulder meat, smother with a spicy dry rub, and cook.


the video quality is fine but the cooking instruction? I'm Puerto Rican and never in my life have I or any Puerto Rican I know made pernil like this. the idsh he made may be tasty but it is NOT the traditonal pernil

Tradition or not, I'm drooling. I usually put the pernil in a plastic bag
and let it sit in the sauce overnight. Nice vid.
