This Cuban-inspired dish uses a mix of fresh citrus juices to mimic the taste of a traditional sour orange ingredient. The combo gives the pork a tangy punch of flavor. Fresh orange segments are mixed in with the beans to add a citrus kick.

Orange slices are used as a base for each serving of pork, as well. That last step is worth the small effort; the orange slices boost the look of the plate and add another orange element.

Note that the meat needs to marinate for at least 1 hour and no more than 2 hours.
