Boliche recipe - Cuban Pot Roast
Stuffed with Ham
2 lbs. roast
6 large garlic gloves, crushed well
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 lb. ground ham
3 tbsp. vegetable oil
2 medium onions, sliced
1" slice of tomato, cut into quarters
10 whole black peppers
2 bay leaves
1 cup dry white cooking wine
1 cup water
Mix garlic with the salt and ground pepper. Pierce all around, with
a thin sharp knife. Using half the garlic mixture, stuff holes.
Using a long, sharp knife, cut an "X" through the center of the
roast, length-wise, to make a cavity for the ham. Pack this cavity
with the ground ham. Spread any leftover garlic mixture on the
surface of the roast.
In a Dutch oven, heat the vegetable oil. Brown the roast on all
sides. Add all the other ingredients and bring to a boil. Cover and
lower the heat to a slow simmer. Cook for 2-1/2 hours, turning the
roast every half hour or so.
Slice and garnish with the sauce. Makes 6-8 portions.
