Clay Pot Cuban Style Pork Roast

barbara lentz


When cooking in a clay pot the food loses no moisture creating a moist and flavorful dish. Clay pots are soaked in water for 15 minutes before use and then set in a cold oven and then let to come up to temperature. The food cooks with a steaming effect that makes it so delicious. The clay pot is not washed in harsh cleaners because the pot is porous and absorbs the flavors of what is put into it.
