Slow Cooked Cuban Pork

We spent the winter working on this recipe and I couldn't get it right until this spring!I'm so excited so share it with you! The lunar new year always brings a few tangerines into our lives and we eat very little fruit so they sit around for a long time. This year I decided to use them in our cooking to dilute the sugar rush a little bit. This is a simple dish that just needs the right amount of cooking time to make it fall apart delicious, with a citrusy tang  Slow cooking is the key so give it all day to cook. Take the time to marinade this dish overnight if you want to flavors to really pop.
