Cochinita Pibil

Cochinita Pibil

Cochinita Pibil Originally from the Yucatan in Mexico. Cochinita means baby pig. So if you want to make true Cochinita Pibil you should be digging a hole in the ground and wrap the pig in banana leaves. Me, I try to do it differently. I am not using a whole pig, I use a pork shoulder, injected the marinade and cooked it in a crockpot. After the meat was done, roasted in the oven on high. I was not able to find the main ingredient for the marinade in the regular store. You probably have to go a Mexican Grocery store to get the achiote seasoning

This is not the proper way to make Carnita’s. But hey it’s close enough to it. I had some left over pulled pork and decided to make Carnita’s with it.

Romano’s Macaroni Grill Chianti Pork Chop

Romano’s Macaroni Grill Chianti Pork Chop

If you never had Romano’s Macaroni Grill Chianti Pork Chop you should at least try it ones. This is a great copycat recipe. Here is a video clip how to make the Chianti Pork Chops, potatoes and broccolini. Below I show you how I made mine, with a few adjustments. Used olive oil instead of vegetable oil. Didn’t have the sprig of rosemary so used the dried ones. And of course the wine. To me it tasted just like at Romano’s Macaroni Grill.
