"Cochinita Pibil" - Yucatan Pork for 4

(Customer Reviews)

This is a traditional Mexican dish of slow-roasted pork from the Yucatan Peninsula. Picos’ pork is marinated with citrus, onions, garlic, and imported Mexican achiote paste and roasted in banana leaves for over 9 hours, resulting in melt-in-your-mouth, fall apart pork that is ready to be tucked into a taco, eaten with rice & beans, or enjoyed on its own.

Chef Arnaldo Richards is a third-generation chef who started learning his grandmother’s recipes at age 13 while growing up at his family’s restaurants in Monterey, Mexico. Many of those authentic Mexican dishes and sauces are still on the menu at his legendary restaurant, Picos, which opened in 1984 and remains one of Houston’s most beloved Mexican restaurants.

PICOS; tamales are far superior to any I have purchased online. The filing and the corn wrapping have so much more flavor than those I have gotten from other sources!

Everything went great from start to finish. I love Pico’s queso dips. Both kinds. Their tortillas are great too. I wish they would let you order more tortillas though. They are the best I’ve had. The habanero dip is really good. Spicy but not too hot.
