Throwback Thursday: Cochinita Pibil

Pressure Cooker Cochinita Pibil – Yucatecan Pit Cooked Pork

Last Monday my Pressure Cooker Cochinita Pibil recipe exploded in popularity. Cochinita Pibil is a famous recipe from the Yucatan peninsula in Mexico: pork rubbed with Achiote paste, wrapped in banana leaves, and cooked in a pit. I published my pressure cooking version recipe years ago, and normally it clips along with a dozen views a day, one of my typical “long tail” recipes.

Last Monday it surged in popularity – about 1200 views, seemingly out of nowhere. I think it was featured in a recipe roundup on MSN News, so…great! I love that recipe, and the memory of unwrapping banana leaves at Fonda San Miguel restaurant in Austin, TX.

If they like it enough to feature it, I figured I should re-share it with my loyal readers. So, here you go – pit cooked pork, pressure cooker style.
