    Citrus Port Directions

  1. Hack the hock

    Cut the pork into roughly lemon-sized pieces

  2. Spice things up

    Toss the pork pieces into a zip-top bag along with the onion and spices.

  3. Say yes to the citrus

    Cut the lemon, lime, and orange into wedges and squeeze over the pork

  4. Marinade your night away

    Toss the juiced fruits in the bag with the pork. Mix and let marinade overnight.

    Tip: Remove as much air from the bag as possible before sealing to keep the meat in contact with the marinade.
  5. Pig prep

    Remove the pork mixture from the bag and place onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Spread the pieces out to cover the sheet and top with aluminum foil.

  6. The waiting is the hardest part

    Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Remove the foil and cook for an additional 1 hour. Flip the pork pieces and cook for 1 more hour (3 hours total).

    Tip: After removing the foil, you may need to drain some liquid from your pan so it does not drip in your oven.
  7. Test and rest

    Test your pork before pulling it out of the oven, it should be fork tender. Let your pork rest at room temperature for 15 minutes before cutting.

  8. The pork chop

    Remove the citrus pieces and rough chop the pork and onions into small pieces. Now your pork is ready for the taco!
