Cochinita Pibil
Easy Fairly cheap
Ingredients:
fat pork shoulder, Achiote Paste , Cinnamon, Crushed Fennel Seeds, Corriander Seeds, Cumin Seeds, Ground Nutmeg, Ground Bayleaf, Mexican Oregano, Garlic Cloves, Lemon Juice, Bitter Orange Juice or 3 tbls Cider Vinagar, Red Peppers, Large Onion, Sea Salt
Description:

This red-cooked Mexican Pork is marinated in an acidic dressing, then cooked slowly for hours, with meltingly tender results. It’s a traditional recipe from Yucatan, where pork would be marinaded in the bitter local orange juice with achiote paste, then wrapped in banana leaves and buried in a fire pit for hours (pibil is Mayan for buried). Those of you without a handy banana tree and fire pit can make it in the oven in a dish sealed tightly with tinfoil – banana leaves, although very decorative, don’t really add any flavour, so you’re not really losing out here. The juice of bitter oranges can be approximated with a bit of vinegar and some lemon juice blended with sweet orange juice.

Unfortunately, while you can do clever conjuring tricks with your lemons, vinegar and tinfoil, there’s not really anything you can substitute for the achiote paste in this recipe. Achiote is what gives this dish its lovely red colour. It’s a made from crushed annatto seeds but the paste is far preferable. www.foxs-spices.co.uk is a  good UK supplier of Mexican ingredients, and will mail you some paste.
