A great day to make a slow cooked dish. That's right, I made Puerco Pibil.
You know, everyone always raves about Johnny Depp and his Pirates character, but no one ever mentions Once Upon a Time in Mexico. I'm not a huge Robert Rodriguez fan, as most of his movies are b-grade shit, but Mexico was right on the money. And in the end, I now have Puerco Pibil.
Puerco Pibil, also known as Cochinita Pibil, is a traditional Mexican dish of slow-roasted pork from the Yucatan. It's a very simple dish to prepare, if you have access to the components, and it has an amazing flavor and tenderness when finished. Plus it's a great excuse to drink lots of Tequila.
The Recipe is pretty common, and a good interpretation can be found here. A good Margarita, on the other hand... Well, here's MY interpretation:
1 Cup Gold Tequila
1 Cup Bacardi Ciclon
1/2 Cup Triple Sec
1 Can MinuteMaid Limeade
1-2 Can(s) Water (Depending on taste)
Juno Reactor- Pistolero
Link Wray - Rumble
Dick Dale- Miserlou
Tito & Tarantula - Angry Cockroaches
