  Dried oregano 2 Teaspoon
  Dry red wine 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)

Directions

Wipe the pork with damp paper towels.
With the tip of a sharp knife, pierce the meat on all sides and insert the garlic slivers.
Rub the meat all over with salt and oregano, then place in a shallow roasting pan in a preheated 325° to 350° F. [170° to 180° C] oven, and roast uncovered for two and a half hours or until thoroughly cooked.
After the first 30 minutes of cooking, pour the wine over the meat and pour the tomato juice or chopped tomatoes around the meat.
Baste the roast occasionally with the liquid in the pan.
When done, remove from the oven and pour the lemon juice over the meat.
Cool thoroughly, then carve the meat into very thin slices and serve cold.
