Recipe Name: Achiote Pulled Pork

Submitted By: Jeanne in NC
Original Source: ???
Type: Main Dishes
Serves: 6-8
Prep Time: cooking time 3-4 hours, prep time 30 min

2 T achiote paste
6 garlic cloves, peeled
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup lime juice
2 T orange juice
2 lb lean boneless pork shoulder

Cilantro-- Garnish
16 to 18 warm tortillas
2 large banana leaves


Rough chop garlic and smoosh garlic and salt together until a paste results. Combine garlic and achiote paste enough water to form a thick, spreadable paste. Combine above mitures with
citrus juice in large bowl. Coat meat with new mixture. Rub the mixture into every part of the meat. Cover the meat.--refridgerate over night.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Wrap pork in banana leaves--add any excess spice paste. Place pork in roasting pan with 1 cup water. Cover. Cook approxamately 3 hours or until pork falls apart. You may want to add water occasionally during roasting. I like to let the meat cool and skim the fat from resulting liquid. Shred pork. Serve warm with remaining liquid from roasting. Reduce liquid if needed.
