On my Saturday radio program (click here for more info on that or to listen live) I will talk about making this crazy good recipe that I first found at the Alma de Cuba restaurant in Philadelphia.
Basically, it's a twice-cooked meat (you can use beef, but pork works just as well). After the meat is falling off itself, you put it into a pan with a little oil, some spices, garlic, onion, and let those aromatics infuse into the meat until the onions are good and soft.
Once that happens, turn up the heat to HIGH and crisp-up the shredded meat just a bit. At the end, you will want to squeeze a lime over the top to freshen up the flavor.
This is served over rice and seasoned black beans. We are making this tonight at my house -- served along with our avocado mango salsa. By the way, if you have a mojito on hand, it's just a wonderful Cuba-inspired bonus!!
