Adobo Roasted Pork Shoulder
Asadero-Hominy Souffle, Avocado-Grapefruit Salad, Mango Mojo
Adobo is a semi sweet, smoky and spicy chili sauce with Spanish origins. Here this sauce is brightened with orange and the meat is lightly charred over the grill before being draped with the sauce then topped with fresh pineapple and wrapped with banana leaves and slow cooked for around 6 hours. The meat will be somewhat broken apart then reheated over the grill while basting with the pan juices. The pork is served with a cheesy souffle of ground hominy scallion and eggs. Asadero is a whole milk cheese with a low melting point and a creamy milde flavor. Fresh avocado is sliced to order and dressed with grapefruit supremes, radish and cilantro leaves. The dish is finished with a Cuban descended condiment of pureed mango, rosemary, garlic and oil.

Pepper and Lime Rubbed Venison Leg
Slow Cooked Field Peas, Fried Tomatillos, Pickled Pepper Aioli
The venison is rubbed with a marinade of lime zest, black, white and green peppercorn then cooked to temperature over the grill. Rare to med-rare is the preferred temp here please. Anything past medium really starts to degrade this lean cut of meat. Field peas are simmered with ham hock and the trinity of vegetable for several hours until the ham hock is tender and the beans have begun to lose their shape. Tangy tomatillos are quartered then beer battered and fried golden. An aioli of spicy pickled peppers will finish the plate.
