1 Tbs grated cotija

Achiote Braised Pork

Ingredients:
15 lb boneless pork butt
1/2 pack anato paste
4 Tbs oregano
1 small handful black peppercorns
3 sticks cinnamon
15 star anise
10 cloves
1/2 pt whole garlic
12 bay leaves
2 pints sour orange juice
1/2 pt  sugar

Directions:
Slice pork shoulder into 2 inch thick cuts. Sear on flat top. While pork is searing, get all the ingredients for the marinade and mix them up in a pan or bowl. Once pork is golden brown on both sides, season with salt, like you would a thick cut steak.  Place whole garlic cloves on flat top and brown them off. Once brown, add to the marinade along with the pork. Marinade for 24 hours.  The following day place marinade and pork in a large pot and add enough water to cover pork half way up. Bring liquid to a boil and immediately drop heat to low. Cook over low heat for at least two hours, pork should be fork tender after two hours. If not, cook for another half hour. Cool in its juices, before using for service remove star anise, cinnamon sticks, cloves, and bay leaves.
