Mojo is a garlic and bitter orange sauce that’s popular in Cuban cuisine. Pork sandwich with mojo might just become one of your favorite dishes; so flavorful, it’s juicy, delicious and everyone will love it! I prepared a roast pork loin for this recipe, but you could also make swap out the loin for leftover pork from your Christmas and New Year’s celebration. Pair this sandwich with potatoes or fried yucca for a complete meal.
