This is one of our all time favorites, also known as cochinita pibil. I've got a big ol' hunk of piggy in the freezer and the banana leaves. I even have the sour orange juice. I think this will go on the menu next week.
Thanks for the beautiful pictures, they sure made me drool.
I've done that recipe a couple of times in the slow cooker & it turns out great (although I cut back on the cloves, not a big clove fan).
I have wondered if smoking would work. Looks like it will. That lime juice variation sounds good. Nice job.
This is about the best looking Puerco Pibil I've ever seen around~ outstanding job FiU! Eaten a lot of it in my life and the lime juice variation is better as far as I'm concerned. All good tho, and if you like it, well, heck...you like it.
Banana leaves are springy and thank your assistant for the pic. Good job on the step-by-step, by the way. Nicely done.
Excellent post, and thank you for sharing. Definite points!
