I needed an inexpensive dish for a potluck to feed about 15 people, but I was tired of my usuals: Chili, carne guisada, pasta Bolognese, meatloaf, etc. While grocery shopping I saw bone-in pork ribs on sale for $1/lb! Ta-daaah! I knew what I was going to make!
My dish is influenced by Robert Rodriguez’ “Puerco pibil” recipe as seen on YouTube, but I’ve made significant changes to it and come out with a version I believe more flavorful and with less of a hot pepper burn.
This dish is inexpensive, easy to make, delicious, and only requires lots of oven time.
Feel free to add more peppers to increase the heat. I recommend you roast any added peppers to continue the earthy taste already present and provide contrast to the citrus flavor.
