Binging with Babish: Puerco Pibil from Once Upon a Time in Mexico

  • Pre-order my first cookbook, Eat What You Watch: A Cleverly-Titled Romp Through the Fanciful Fêtes of Fiction! Really it's just called Eat What You Watch, but I totally should have called it that instead.
    Barnes & Noble:

    Once Upon a Time in Mexico, against all odds, played a large role in the creation of BwB - my first-ever DVD, its special features showed me that I could one day be a filmmaker *and* a chef. In this 2003 Banderas action-comedy, Johnny Depp inexplicably caps a cook for making this Yucatánian special a bit too perfectly; as director Robert Rodriguez says, make at your own peril.

    Recipes coming soon to!

    In science class we learned that some people aren’t able to taste cilantro normally (tastes like soap) because of their genes, and immediatly I thought about Andrew and how he doesn’t have a palette for cilantro. You’re not alone. It’s because genetics.

  • Harlequin 9  (4 days ago))

    Weird because while I’m not a huge fan of cilantro I don’t hate so I never understood his disdain

  • Petrol91  (Jan 10, 2019))

    That would make a lot of sense. Because in never understood why he wouldnt like it. I throw it in nearly every asian dish I make

    Lol, I love when he puts in little references like these. I was hoping someone else caught it.

  • Aimar P. Dzakri  (Aug 8, 2017))

    I almost sleep until i saw this in my sub box....

  • MrSplic3r  (Jan 15, 2019))

    As long as you didn't also stay up to make it, that seems like a reasonable dalliance

    Ni🅱️🅱️a how many times I gotta ask. Soup from ratatouille

  • Thomas The Tank Engine  (Jul 25, 2018))

    The Big Man you can't really make it no one really knows what type of soup it is

  • Camdon Heck  (Aug 8, 2017))

    Oh my god that looks so good its getting harder and harder for me to watch this show since my mother is forcing veganizm on me

  • Skrillah  (5 days ago))

    Anyone down for a bbq infront of Cuck r’s house?

  • Raven Juniper  (Dec 6, 2018))

    +Camdon Heck but what about vitamin B12? No vegan sources for that

  • Nekronatalenheten  (Aug 9, 2017))

    I would absolutely steer away from wrapping this directly in aluminum foil. While it doesn't happen always, the acidity can dissolve the aluminum (it will even get visible holes), leading you to digest it. Wrap it in one or two layers of parchment paper instead, then cover with aluminum foil.

  • KissMyConverseFool  (Dec 29, 2018))

    Brown butcher paper, the stuff they use in BBQs that is darker than parchment, is the best thing to use if you can't find banana leaves

  • Moritz Schmidt  (Dec 6, 2018))

    Aluminum in my diet won't hurt me

  • Young Creamy  (Aug 10, 2017))

    Do the good burger with eds secret sauce

  • Lance  (Aug 11, 2017))

    i was about to make this comment lol

  • Jaymin Maclam  (Aug 8, 2017))

    Babish uses his cooking show to mask his alcoholism lol

  • TrapTrap Trap  (Sep 11, 2017))

    do you even know what alcoholism is?

  • HoiikbenNiek  (Aug 12, 2017))

    nthusiastt true :D
