1 5-6 pounds pork roast; shoulder, sirloin *
1 Head garlic; or to taste
3/4 c Orange juice; bitter OR 3/4 c Orange juice; & lime juice mixed
1 ts Oregano
1 ts Cumin
1 ts Black pepper
Salt; to taste
2 lg Onions; sliced

Trim fat from roast and, with knife, pierce some holes on top of the roast. Mash garlic with salt and add other ingredients except onions. Rub this on roast and insert some in the holes. All of this is in a plastic bag or glass dish. Cover with onions and refrigerate, at least overnight. Barbara has marinated this up to a day and a half. Bake in a covered baking pan at 275 degrees F. for 5-6 hours. Low temps work best. Turn once halfway through cooking. Take roast out of the oven and let stand 20 minutes before carving.
