Description

A traditional Mexican dish, Cochinita Pibil is a slow roasted pork dish tracing its origins to the Yucatan Peninsula. Achiote paste and bitter orange juice are combined to make a marinade in which the pork is marinated overnight. Cooked over plantain leaves in the traditional Mayan fashion, this slow roasted pork is then shredded and served with lime marinated onions. Use the Cochinita Pibil as a taco or burrito filling or serve on buns as a Mexican variant of the pulled pork sandwich.
