Makes: 6 servings Total Time: 2 hr 30 min
Category: Dinner Entrees Sub Category: Pork Entrees

what you need
  • 2 pounds pork butt roast with bone
  • 2 tablespoons achiote paste
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 2/3 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
  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 red onions, sliced into rings
make it
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.

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.
Notes
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.
