Authentic Cochinita Pibil (Spicy Mexican Pulled Pork)



Ingredients :

  • 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
  • Methods :

  • 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.
