Directions

Whisk together 1/2 cup canola oil, oregano and garlic in a large roasting pan. Add the pork and turn to coat. Cover and let marinate in the refrigerator for at least 8 hours and up to 24 hours.

Remove the pork from the refrigerator 30 minutes before roasting. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Sprinkle the pork all over with salt and pepper. Heat the roasting pan with the pork and marinade over medium-high heat. Sear the pork on all sides until dark brown. Add the chicken stock and cover. Place in the oven and let braise until a thermometer inserted into the center reaches about 195 degrees F, 3 1/2 hours. Let the pork rest in the braising liquid for 15 minutes.

While the pork is cooking, put the sour orange juice and honey in a large saucepan over high heat. Bring to a boil and reduce to 2 cups (it will be a syrup consistency). Let cool to room temperature.

Shred the pork using 2 forks or your hands. In a medium saucepan, toss the shredded pork with the orange honey glaze and reheat over medium heat. Serve the pork on top of some Sweet Potato Hash, topped with the eggs and Sofrito Hollandaise. Garnish with cilantro leaves.
Cover the potatoes with cold water in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat and simmer until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain the potatoes and dice.

Heat about 1 tablespoon canola oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the country ham and cook, turning once, until golden brown on both sides. Remove to a cutting board and coarsely chop.

Toss the potatoes and ham with the cilantro, chipotles, honey and scallions, and mix gently until combined. Season with salt and pepper. Using a potato masher, gently work the mixture together-it should still be fairly chunky.

Heat the butter in a large cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Add the potato mixture and press into the skillet with spatula. Cook, scraping and turning as the bottom browns, until it is hot and filled with crispy bits. Divide among 4 to 6 dinner plates.
Heat the oil in a small saute pan over high heat. Add the onions and poblano and cook until soft, about 4 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Season with salt and pepper. Remove the sofrito from the heat and let cool slightly.

Place the vinegar and egg yolks in a medium stainless steel bowl set over a pot of simmering water. Whisk the yolks until pale yellow and fluffy. Slowly add the melted butter, a few tablespoons at a time, and whisk until thickened. Stir in the sofrito and sour orange juice. Season with salt and pepper. Keep warm until ready to use.
