Cuban pork is flavored with a garlicky-citrus marinade and slow roasted until it is falling apart and luxurious. With no added sugar, the homemade “mojo” sauce is Keto, and it’s an exciting change of pace for a weeknight dinner. Set the pork to cook before you head to work, and you’ll be greeted with a hot and delicious dinner when you get home.

Salt, to season
Cracked black pepper, to season
1 large red onion, chopped
