Let's Make It
Pierce meat all over with tip of sharp knife. Place in large non-reactive bowl.
Mix dressing, fruit juices, sherry and cumin in large bowl. Reserve 1/2 cup dressing mixture; pour remaining dressing mixture over meat. Add onions and garlic; cover bowl. Refrigerate several hours or overnight to marinate.
Heat oven to 350°F. Remove meat from marinade; discard marinade. Pat meat dry, then place in foil-lined roasting pan. Insert meat thermometer into thickest part of meat, being careful to not touch bone with thermometer. Bake 1 hour or until browned on all sides, turning occasionally.
Reduce oven temperature to 325°F. Pour reserved dressing mixture over meat; cover loosely with foil. Bake 3 hours or until thermometer registers 180°F, basting frequently with pan juices and removing foil for the last 30 min. of baking time. Let stand 15 min. before slicing to serve.
Serve with cooked corn on the cob and a mixed green salad.
Cover and refrigerate any leftover cooked meat. Use to make the traditional Cuban Midnight Sandwich.
