Precious peices of porky goodness
I have puerco pibil marinating in the fridge :)
The flavors of achiote,
fresh squeezed orange and lemon juice
should be wonderful tomorrow.
Since I hand cut the marinating pork butt chunks, there were tiny bits of leftovers.
The above is the result of the scrappage - couldn't waste the precious pieces of porky goodness.
(It's not the best presentation...I was hungry.)
I also added just a bit of the marinade to the pork bits, so these were some darn good tacos - better than Chipotle at least. Pork and queso fresco on fresh tortillas.
Tomorrow evening I'll pop the pork in banana leaves and cook them.
Low and slooooooow.
Pics to follow - along with the recipe.
