BackstoryTonight I made use of my previously cooked pork roast that was roasted with citrus seasoning. One of my favorite pork dishes is Arroz Con Gandules, a Puerto Rican dish. Puerto Rico's national dish is called Arroz con Gandules which is a rice-and-pigeon-pea dish nicely seasoned with a sofrito and smoked ham. I substituted the traditional smoked ham with roasted pork.
