Marinated Portuguese Pickled Pork

There are so many different variations of this recipe, not so much for the recipe itself, but for the cooking methods.  I have included all the different methods I have enjoyed, although, I have to admit, my favorite version is how my husband’s grandmother prepared it which is version IV and of course, Variation II for the "morning after.".
