Pork Mimi's Way, Yucatan Style: Cochinita Pibil

Yield:
4 servings
Ingredients
  • 1 cup fresh sour orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons achiote paste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped garlic
  • 3 pounds pork (use 2 thick shoulder steaks cut into large pieces with a few short ribs or pork butt)
  • Salt
Directions
  • Prepare marinade with the orange juice, vinegar, achiote, garlic, and salt, to taste, and mix thoroughly. Rub the mixture into the meat and marinate at room temperature for 1 hour, or refrigerated, for at least 1 hour.

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

  • Line a roaster pan with heavy foil and arrange the marinated pork in it, covering the meat with the marinade. Cover pan with foil tightly and bake for 2 to 3 hours. Check often and turn pieces of meat in their own juices. Roasting times vary according to the toughness of the meat.

  • Chop meat into cubes and discard any fatty parts. Serve with a basket of freshly made corn tortillas.
