Cuban Marinade - 'Mojo'

1 Conversation

Roasted, marinated pork is a traditional Cuban dish. This marinade is particularly good with pork, but can also be used on chicken, lamb and goat.


  • 20 cloves garlic
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • The juice of two oranges, one lemon and one lime, mixed together
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1.5 cups Spanish olive oil


  1. Mash garlic and salt into a paste, using a mortar and pestle.
  2. Stir in fruit juices, onion, and oregano.
  3. Let sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes.
  4. In a saucepan, heat olive oil to the boiling point and remove from the heat.
  5. Whisk in the garlic-orange juice mixture until well blended. This makes approximately two pints of marinade.
  6. Marinate meat for four hours.
  7. Baste meat with mojo during cooking.
