We saw Rick Bayless do this recipe on PBS- Slow Roasted Achiote Pork in Banana leaves or Yucatan Pig(whole) in a pit. I thought,wow the Egg mimics his pit -so last nite tried it on a smaller scale.It is kind of a Mexican style pulled Pork-however it is steamed, not roasted. I used a pork leg,next time I will try a shoulder. Achiote paste pureed with lime juice,placed on the roast and put into my dutch oven surrounded by banana leaves. I slow roasted it at 250-300 for 6 hours. Served it with side of guacomole,roasted serrano and garlic salsa,pickled red onions,fresh tortillas done on the egg,and chipotle black beans with wilted spinch and masa gnocchi. It was great!!!!![p]P2150070.jpgP2150070-1.jpgP2150072-1.jpgP2150071-1.jpgP2150075.jpgP2150076.jpg
