Time 6h55m

Yield 6

Number Of Ingredients 12

1 red onion, sliced thin
3 habanero peppers, sliced
10 limes, juiced
salt to taste
3 ounces dried guajillo chile peppers, seeded and deveined
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
salt and pepper to taste
3 pounds boneless pork shoulder, cut into 1-inch cubes
3 cups fresh orange juice
1 cup white vinegar
1 bulb garlic, peeled
7 ½ ounces achiote paste


  • Combine the onion, habanero peppers, lime juice, and salt in a bowl; cover and refrigerate while preparing and cooking the pork. Use rubber gloves when preparing the habanero peppers and avoid touching your eyes, nose, or skin while slicing peppers.
  • Place the guajillo peppers in a bowl; pour enough hot water over the peppers to cover. Allow to soak until the peppers are softened, about 10 minutes.
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet at medium-high heat. Season pork with salt and pepper; cook in the hot oil until completely browned, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer the pork to a slow cooker.
  • Combine the guajillo peppers, orange juice, vinegar, garlic, and achiote paste in a blender; blend until smooth. Pour the sauce over the pork cubes in the slow cooker.
  • Cook on High until the pork easily falls apart, 6 to 8 hours. Remove the pork to a serving dish and shred with 2 forks. Pour the achiote sauce over the shredded pork. To serve, top with the onion-habanero salsa.

Cochinita Pibil image

This is my favorite Mexican pork dish that is always a hit. Can be toned down with less or no peppers and still tastes awesome. If you can find Seville orange juice, use it in place of the lemon and regular orange juice for authentic Mexican flavor. Quite easy to prepare too! Your whole family will love this famous Mexican dish!

Time 2h30m

Yield 6

Number Of Ingredients 12

2 pounds pork butt roast with bone
2 tablespoons achiote paste
⅓ cup orange juice
⅔ cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice
2 habanero peppers, seeded and chopped
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground coriander
salt and pepper to taste
½ cup red wine vinegar
2 red onions, sliced into rings


  • Poke holes all over the pork with a fork. Rub achiote paste all over the pork, and set aside. In a large bowl, mix together the orange juice, lemon juice, and habanero peppers. Mix in the cumin, paprika, chili powder, coriander, salt and pepper. Place pork in the mixture, cover, and refrigerate overnight, turning two or three times.
  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Wrap the pork and marinade in aluminum foil or banana leaves that have been soaked in water for 30 minutes. Place into a casserole dish, and cover.
  • Bake for about 2 hours, until the meat falls off the bone. The slower you cook it, the better it is. You could also bake it in a 200 degrees F (95 degrees C) oven for 4 or 5 hours, or in a slow cooker without the foil or leaves.
  • While the pork is cooking, make the sauce. Bring the red wine vinegar to a boil in a small saucepan. Add onions, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until tender. Pour sauce over pork, and serve with white rice and corn tortillas. Each person can make tacos or fajitas with the pork, the rice and the sauce.

Puerco Pibil image

I got this recipe from the movie "Once Upon A Time In Mexico" starring Antonio Banderas and Johnny Depp. The director (or maybe producer - not sure) Robert Rodriguez made a short cooking show at the end of the DVD showing how to cook this dish. I have not made it yet because the annato seeds were not available locally so I ordered them from Penzey's and they just came in. I plan on making this next weekend so I will post an update on the recipe. NOTE: Rodriguez suggests that you have a coffee grinder just for grinding seeds and do not attempt to grind coffee beans after the seasoning. He states you will never get out all of the seasoning and will affect the taste of your coffee so splurge and buy a grinder just for your seasonings. You can buy banana leaves at your asian market but if you cannot find them wrap the pork in foil. He says the leaves add flavor and moisture.

Time 5h

Yield 8 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 14

5 lbs pork butt, cubed into 2 inch pieces
5 tablespoons annatto seeds
2 teaspoons cumin seeds
1 tablespoon black peppercorns
8 whole allspice
1/2 teaspoon whole cloves
2 red habanero peppers, diced (remove seeds and membrane)
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup white vinegar
2 tablespoons salt
8 cloves garlic, peeled
5 lemons, juiced
1 tablespoon tequila
banana leaf


  • Put annato seeds, cumin seeds, peppercorns, allspice and cloves in a clean coffee grinder and grind very fine.
  • Put orange juice, white vinegar, habanero peppers, ground spice powder, salt, garlic, lemon juice and tequila in blender.
  • Blend until smooth.
  • Place cubed pork and liquid from blender in zip loc bag and marinate for one hour.
  • Line a 9x13 baking pan with banana leaves.
  • Pour pork mixture directly on top of banana leaves and cover with more banana leaves.
  • Cover tightly with foil.
  • Bake at 325 degrees for 4 hours.


Cochinita Pibil (Or

This is director Robert Rodriguez's version of the recipe with some of the measurements modified and simplified so you're not squeezing 10 lemon halves and wondering how much 8 cloves of garlic is to a cup. I also don't use banana leaves...too much cash and I'm here to save you some money. Trust me, the pork tastes just as good as the leaves are only for show. Let me also say that Annatto is also known as "Achiote Seed". You can get it at any Spanish market in the city in which you live...and I would ALSO recommend using the powder version of ANY of the spices with the exception of cloves and all-spice berries. My pork is also hotter because I'm a spice-nut. Last, but not least, the pork: get it de-boned by your butcher or deli clerk. This takes a minute or less at the store and is VERY worth it. Otherwise, you will spend a LONG time trying to cut around a hand-sized bone inside the meat. I also like to marinate the meat overnight which is the reason this recipe takes HOURS to prepare. If this isn't your thing, one to two hours will do as well but an overnight stay in your fridge will allow the juices to better penetrate the meat. Also, you want the following items: 1) Coffee/spice grinder 2) 1 Large Chef's Knife/Santoku 3) Blender 4) Measuring Cup/Spoons 5) 1 1/2 Gallon Ziploc Bags 6) Casserole or Baking Dish 7) Aluminum Foil (the big, wide foil, not standard) 8) Rubber gloves (for cutting the peppers; if you don't have these, use plastic bags to go over your hands) If you have a coffee grinder, make sure you're not gonna use it for making coffee in the near future because your coffee will have that spice taste. If you don't have a coffee/spice grinder, you CAN use a blender to grind your spices. It DOES work, though it isn't recommended.

Time 7h

Yield 6-8 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 16

5 tablespoons ground annatto seed (Achiote)
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 tablespoon ground black pepper
8 whole allspice
1/2 teaspoon whole cloves
3 habanero peppers, minced
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup white vinegar
2 tablespoons salt
8 garlic cloves (or 1/3 cup of garlic, peeled and minced)
1 cup lemon juice
3 tablespoons tequila
5 lbs pork shoulder, chopped (AKA "Pork Butt")
lettuce (optional)
jalapeno pepper (optional)


  • First, you have to prepare the Achiote Paste. This is used to marinate the pork. First, put the Annatto Powder, Ground Cumin, Black Pepper, All-Spice seeds and whole cloves into a spice grinder. Grind into a fine dust. You wanna do that because if you don't, the dust can be VERY gritty. Not good.
  • Cut up the habanero peppers. I use three. I also leave the seeds in and most of the membrane. USE GLOVES WHEN HANDLING AND CUTTING UP THE PEPPERS. I cannot stress that enough. If you use your hands to cut the peppers and then touch the seeds and membrane and then touch or scratch your face or eyes or any bit of your skin for any reason, you're gonna be the sorriest person on the planet.
  • Also, take the time to cut up and mince your garlic. You can use your hands to do this.
  • Pour in your orange juice, white vinegar, minced-up habanero, add your grinded up spices (if you used a blender to grind up your spices instead of a grinder, you don't have to do this), salt and garlic and then blend well for about a minute. If you think you still have some grit or pulp from your ingredients, keep blending.
  • After it's well-mixed, pour in a full cup of lemon juice. I like to just buy the stuff, pre-squeezed. They DO sell all-natural stuff, so you won't be cheating too much when you squeeze it from a bottle.
  • After that, add in 2 to 3 shots of tequila. Blend again.
  • Get your pork shoulder and cut it into 1 to 1 1/2-inch cubes. Once done, throw all the cut-up meat into a big 1 1/2-gallon Ziploc bag.
  • Pour the Achiote Paste you've prepared into the bag with the chopped-up pork and MAKE SURE THE BAG IS SEALED. This juice, when it drips, is capable of staining and leaves a pungent smell due to all the acids contained in it. Once sealed, put it into the fridge and let it marinate overnight. If you don't want to wait, allow two hours to marinate.
  • Next, preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
  • Once properly marinated, get your casserole or baking dish and line it with aluminum foil. I recommend using the wider yield because this helps prevent spillage into the dish. Once the pan is lined and you have slack foil on the sides, pour in all the pork and juice and close the foil up over the meat. It wouldn't hurt to add ANOTHER layer of foil and tuck the meat in on the inside of the pan. This prevents any steam from escaping, thus properly allowing the food to slow cook perfectly. Then, add one more piece on top to go AROUND the outside edges of the pan.
  • Once the oven is ready, put the entire dish in (make sure to handle it carefully; you don't want it to slip and fall) and shut the door.
  • Set the oven timer for 4 hours and don't look back. The meat slow-cooks on its own and you DON'T need to check on it. Doing so makes the oven lose heat.
  • During the last 30 or so minutes of the cooking, prepare your rice according to the package.
  • CAREFULLY, remove the dish from the oven after the timer has gone off and CAREFULLY, open up the foil, avoiding ANY escaping steam.
  • Use a fork to break up the steamed pork into shreds. This allows the meat to absorb a lot of the left-over juice. This also allows the pleasant side-effect of the pork tasting even BETTER the next hour and even the next day.
  • If you want to get fancy and act like you own a swank restaurant, get a large lettuce leaf and then spoon out an even bed of rice on top of it. If you don't feel like using lettuce, just spoon out a bed of rice on a plate.
  • Spoon out a generous amount of pork on top of the rice.
  • Garnish with a jalapeno pepper -- and enjoy. :).

Yield 6

Number Of Ingredients 16

5 tablespoons whole annato seeds
2 teaspon whole cumin seeds
1 tablespoon peppercorns
8 whole allspice seeds
1/2 teaspoon whole cloves
1st part of the ingredients
2 habanero chiles, stems and seeds removed, chopped
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup white vinegar
2 tablespoon salt
8 cloves garlic
2nd part of the ingredients
5 Lemons
5 pounds of pork
Splash of tequila


  • Grind and mix all the spices. I use a coffee grinder to do so but not the same I use to grind my coffee. In a blender, add the spices and the 1st part of the ingredients. Mix until you get a puree. Add the juice of 5 lemons in the blender. Add a splash of tequilla (I use about 1 ounce 1/2). Mix again with the blender. Cut the pork into 1 inch cubes. Combine everything in a zip-lock bag and mix well. [You can let it marinate a bit but if you cook it right there, it's better tasting.] Cover a pan that goes in the oven with bananas leaves. Put the mix in the pan. Cover with banana leaves. Put foil to cover. [If you cover it so nothing escape, you will have a juicy and tasty meal, my favorite. If you let heat come out, you'll get a very dry and spicy mix]. Bake 4 hours at 325; serve over rice
