Brazilian Braised Pork in Passion Fruit, Orange and Guajillo Peppers

Brazilian Braised Pork in Passion Fruit, Orange and Guajillo Peppers

This Brazilian Braised Pork in Passion Fruit, Orange and Guajillo Peppers is braised in a blended passion fruit, orange and guajillo chile mixture until fall apart deliciousness happens. Four hours later, with minimal effort required on your part, this beautifully seasoned pork is your new best friend.

While a typical Brazilian pepper is the malagueta, I wanted a smokey flavor and opted for the guajillo here. If they are not available near you, some good substitutes are the Ancho pepper, the Pasilla and the Cascabel. That is the middle range of hot chilis, think Tabasco pepper and Thai Bird’s-eye chile hot. You’re safe with the guajillo on the heat factor.

Easy enough to shred and make tacos, roll inside enchiladas or stuff a fluffy ciabatta roll, this flavorful pork hits the mark for low level of effort needed and maximum flavor achieved.

You may add frozen orange juice concentrate to slow roasting pork for the flavor and the caramelization that occurs while roasting. The browned, cubed pork develops a wonderful flavor and the result is a tender, juicy shredded pork. The passion fruit added that extra touch. The delicate flavor of the passion fruit doesn’t go unnoticed in the end result and the aroma is intoxicating. Serve shredded and make tacos, roll inside enchiladas or stuff a fluffy ciabatta roll with a drizzle of Mexican Crema, a squeeze of lime and chopped cilantro leaves.
