Cuban Lechon Asado, Cuban Roast Pork

Can you believe we have snow, in Minnesota, in April? Really, our weather has been unpredictable with a few days in the 70’s but mostly just cold and dreary. None of that matters coz I’ve gone to Miami. In my mind, at least with this glorious dish: Cuban Lechon Asado – Cuban Pork Roast.

Notice the explanation point. I get excited about stuffing, especially since I usually only have it once a year. Anything else can be as gourmet or as basic as you’d like, but the stuffing? It has to be this one. This is Classic Midwestern Stuffing or Dressing,
