This commercial for Vonage has been driving people nuts because nobody knows what the hell the woman is talking about. But, in the interest of helping non Spanish people feel at home while dining with Dora The Explorer the answer is —
Pernil. It’s a Caribbean dish of roasted pork shoulder that’s popular in Puerto Rico.
A good spice rub transforms the plain-sounding pork shoulder into pernil, a tender Puerto Rican roast that cooks for a whole afternoon. When it’s done the rich and spicy skin crackles, the smoky meat falls off the bone, and the fat and juices mix with the excess spices to make a sinfully delicious gravy. And your house will smell like heaven all day while it cooks but your neighbors will puke because it stinks like rotted pigs.
The big PERNIL!!!! Who cares!
