A Puerto Rican Moment …. “It Happens …. What, no pernil?”!!


Pernil

~~April 26, 2016~~ 

SAY WHAT??

Pernil (pernil asado, pernil al horno, roast pork butt), a slow-roasted marinated pork shoulder. In Puerto Rico the dish is commonly shared during Christmas, typically accompanied by arroz con gandules (rice with pigeon peas).

The pork shoulder is used as a whole piece, with skin and bone. It is marinated the day prior to roasting with sofrito, salt, pepper plus possibly additional spices (oregano, adobo). Sofrito are placed deeply within the meat through small cuts.

After marination the covered meat is slowly roasted initially in the oven for several hours, and, in the final phase, at a higher temperature with the cover off to get the skin crispy. When finished, the meat “falls off the bone”, and the crispy skin (cuerto) is separated, cleared of fat, and can be served separately as cueritos (skin chips).

THE BORICUA IN ME .. THE PUERTO RICAN AND PROUD

I’m proud of where I’m from
I represent the red, white, and blue
No it’s not America – supposedly home of the free
That’s the place that all I pay is nothing but a fee
I represent the red, white and blue

Only difference is that this flag has one star (the only star)
Which means I am a superstar
Where I’m from, everything that is true, we say “WEPA”
When we get pissed, we say “coño”
When we laugh, we say “que estúpido
When we see beauty, we say “que chula
When we smell food, it’s “arroz con pollo” (don’t forget the “pernil“)

When we play, it’s a classic game of dominoes
When we love, it’s always a say of “te quiero
How can anyone dismiss us like students being dropped off at the school yard without a goodbye

It’s call undeniable love
So genuinely surreal, we fly high above the clouds with grace like a dove
So always remember, when you see the red, white, and blue

Think of the island of Puerto Rico, where we speak from the heart in which all we say are true
