Notes

We like to boil the remaining marinade for a minute or two and add a dash of mustard to use as a dipping sauce for the pork.
Pork is cooked when it reaches an internal temperature of 165F/62C.

    1. Hi Sheila! We used regular Dill Pickles, but you can probably use whatever your favorite pickles are! 🙂

  1. I made these last night and they were E-X-C-E-L-L-E-N-T!!! Even my fussy eater loved them, in fact she told me they are one of the best things I’ve made and to add them to our rotation!
    I used Serrano ham and in half of them I used Daiya Swiss Cheese (because I’m allergic to dairy) unfortunately I had to prepare the mojo without mint but it was still delicious.
