Salsa Verde Braised Pork Shoulder

RECIPE

 

 

The best part about a braise is that you are rewarded so handsomely for leaving the oven on for a few hours. There’s not that much active work. Braised meat reheats well, so you can make it ahead of time for a big dinner or occasion. You can freeze pints of braised meat and pull them out for an easy, quick weeknight dinner.

Good on it's own for braising, dipping, maybe even bathing in, this salsa is also a super base for endless variations.

RECIPE

Need a braising sauce for a pork shoulder? This salsa is on it. Need a labor-light supper that involves merely heating things up? Throw this salsa in a slow cooker with chicken thighs for 3 to 4 hours. Did your local grocery store stop carrying the salsa morita that had the power to right all wrongs in your life, no matter how sad or pathetic you were feeling? This salsa will (almost) get that job done.

Eating your greens has never tasted so good.

Eating your greens has never tasted so good.

RECIPE

Smoky meat is irresistible. That's seems to be hardwired into our evolutionary biology. These smoky, melt-in-your-mouth greens are out of this world. We've folded them in soft corn tortillas charred over open flame and sprinkled them with salty, firm queso fresco and spicy Mexican chorizo. Each bite is juicy and satisfying. They make a perfect family supper and work just as well as snacks around a kitchen island with cold beers.

RECIPE

Lots of people like shrimp. Shrimp are likable! They are sweet and snappy, appealingly pink, and soak up flavors quickly. But people also think shrimp should be super cheap, and super cheap shrimp is almost definitely caught and processed under miserable conditions. For human beings.

Pollo Pibil Tacos with Citrus-Pickled Onions


True pibil requires digging a pit for barbecuing seasoned meats. We lined a slow cooker with banana leaves to worthy results.

RECIPE

 

 

The Paloma is a natural choice for citrus lovers like us. It's a great year-round cocktail, too: refreshing in the warmer months, a reminder of sunnier days when the weather is miserable. We got to thinking about how much more we enjoy them in the company of others and set out to create a tequila and grapefruit-based punch.
