Cuban Braised Pork - GFCFSF

2 lbs boneless pork shoulder, trimmed of fat
2 teaspoons each salt and pepper
6 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons dried oregano
1/2 bunch parsley, stems removed and discarded, leaves chopped
3 green onions (scallions), green parts only, chopped
The zests of 1/2 lime, 1/2 lemon, and 1/2 orange
1 teaspoon ground cumin
3/4 cup olive oil
1 medium white or sweet onion, thinly sliced
2 cups chicken stock or broth

Season the pork with salt and pepper. In a bowl, make a paste by whisking together the garlic, oregano, parsley, green onion, zests, cumin, and oil. Rub the paste all over the pork. Wrap the roast and place in a bowl and marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours.

Preheat the oven to 350° F. Place the onions in the bottom of a Dutch oven large enough to hold the roast. Put the roast on top of the onions and add the stock. Cover and braise in the oven for 3 hours, about 160°F.

Remove the roast from the pan and let it rest for about 15 minutes. Serve with the pan juices and onions over rice, if desired.
