Pernil de porc, also known as pork shoulder or ham hock, is a succulent and flavorful cut of meat that originates from the hind leg of a pig. This ingredient serves as a popular centerpiece for special occasions in Latin American and Caribbean cuisines. Its rich marbling and tender texture make it perfect for slow roasting, braising, or smoking, resulting in a melt-in-your-mouth experience with every bite. Pernil de porc is often seasoned with a blend of spices and herbs, including garlic, oregano, and cumin, to enhance its natural flavor and aroma.
