Had planned on starting my Cochinita pibil friday night,but a call to go to work SATURDAY!! forced me to get up at 3:00 and start it before I left.This is our favorite way to do our pork and it is pretty easy to do.

The meat from Returant Depot is hard to beat

    Dale,

    Sounds and looks amazing. Tres Genaraciones? is Tequila isn't it? That would make a potent drink with cointreau.

    Here you go Molly
    I prefer who;e spices Molly and then I grind,you can adapt powdered.
    2oz Achiote seeda(you can buy the paste in a box)
    2tbsp Mexican Oregeno
    1-1/2 tsp Cumin seeds
    1/2 tsp whole cloves
    1-1/2 tbsp peppercorns Black
    1- 5-7 inch cinnamon stick

    Grind all the dry spices well
    In a blender add 1- 1/2 cups Sour Orange juice,12-15 cloves of Garlic and 1 tbsp kosher salt.
    Molly blend it really well and then I let it sit for an hour and blend again.It is a fool proof recipe and gives the meat a great flavor.

    Oh man that meal looks awesome. I really want to try Pibil but having never had it I don't know what it should taste like. I always try to know my food a bit before I cook it. I guess I have to head south to try it!!
  • rsmdalersmdale Posts: 2,472
    Hey BB come on down we always welcome hungry folks~~ The flavor is a deep savory,not spicy at all.
