Ingredients
  

  • 3 lb pork shoulder or Picnic Shoulder. Cut in 5cm – 8cm 2″ – 3″
  • ½ cup sour orange juice
  • ½ cup lime juice fresh about 2-3 limes
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon parsley chopped
  • ½ tablespoon thyme leaves only
  • 2 stalks scallions chopped
  • 1 tbsp Noubess Cajun Seasoning Salt-Free
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • vegetable oil for frying

Instructions
 

  • Juice the limes and set the liquid aside. Do not throw away the limes juices or the lime or lemon skins.
  • In a bowl add meat and rub lime pieces/skins on each meat piece to clean. Rinse with water and put aside.
  • In a separate dish add all the remaining ingredients except the oil and stir.
  • Add the meat pieces in a ziplock bag or bowl with all spices and let marinate for at least 30 minutes before cooking. Marinate for a longer period of time for more flavor.
  • Add the meat and marinade into a heavy pan or pot and boil on low to medium-high heat covered for about 30 – 45 minutes until the meat is tender. Remove the meat only from the pot and fry in batches in hot oil. Reserve the liquid to make a Creole Sauce later. Remove from the oil and place on a plate covered with a paper towel to remove any excess oil.
  • If roasting in the oven, prepare a baking dish and add the meat pieces. Do not overcrowd the pan. Preheat the oven to 375°F degree and roast the meat until golden brown, about 25 – 30 minutes. Remove and serve hot with fried plantains and a salad.

Notes

  • Let the meat marinate longer for more flavor.
  • Use your spice blend recipe or our seasoning recipe to replace the combination of the fresh herbs.
  • If you like spicy meat, add more Noubess Cajun Seasoning, Salt-Free.
  • Do not use regular orange juice if you have sour orange juice. They are not the same. You can use lemon or lime juice only to replace the sour juice.
  • The best griot recipe is made with the correct seasoning and spices and fried to a golden brown. Do not ever fry the pork meat until the pieces are crispy. The meat pieces will lose their moisture, be hard to chew, and not be appetizing.
