Cuban Pork (Masitas de Puerco)


1 1/2 lbs boneless pork loin - cut into 2 inch cubes
6 garlic cloves - crushed
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 cup sour orange juice or orange juice and lime juice
1/4 cup olive oil
1 onion, chopped (add half to marinade, save half for later)

Mix cubed pork and all other ingredients together in a sealable container. Refrigerate 3 hours to overnight. Remove from marinade and place pork in a shallow baking pan or frying pan. Add remaining chopped onions. You can either use the stove top to simmer off the liquid then let the pork fry in the remaining oil until crispy or you can place the ovenproof pan in a 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes where it will do the same thing. The meat should be tender and moist inside and crispy outside.
