Mexican Pork

Chilorio is a pork dish from the Mexican state of Sinaloa. Chilorio is generally made from pork fried in chili sauce. In making chilorio, pork is slow-simmered for hours until it falls apart. It is then broken into bite size pieces, fried in lard (yuk,) and cooked in a chili sauce made from re-hydrated dried chili. The sauce is usually flavored with onions, cumin and garlic. There is one Chilorio's restaurant in Coral Gables and its name there is Chilorio's Very Mexican. This one just opened on US-1 near SW 67th Avenue.
