Puerco Pibil is an unforgettable dish, and the time and effort to make it is worth every minute. The meat is marinated in a combination of citrus juice and achiote paste, then roasted in banana leaves. The resulting tender, flavorful morsels of meat can be used in many ways. Traditionally served in a warm tortilla with pickled red onions, the dish originates from the Mayan region of Mexico, primarily the Yucatan peninsula.
"Once Upon a Time in Mexico"
"El, you really must try this because it's puerco pibil. It's a slow-roasted pork, nothing fancy. It just happens to be my favorite, and I order it with a tequila and lime in every dive I go to in this country. And honestly, that is the best it's ever been anywhere. In fact, it's too good." - Agent Sands
