I got this recipe from the movie "Once Upon A Time In Mexico" starring Antonio Banderas and Johnny Depp. The director (or maybe producer - not sure) Robert Rodriguez made a short cooking show at the end of the DVD showing how to cook this dish. I have not made it yet because the annato seeds were not available locally so I ordered them from Penzey's and they just came in. I plan on making this next weekend so I will post an update on the recipe. NOTE: Rodriguez suggests that you have a coffee grinder just for grinding seeds and do not attempt to grind coffee beans after the seasoning. He states you will never get out all of the seasoning and will affect the taste of your coffee so splurge and buy a grinder just for your seasonings. You can buy banana leaves at your asian market but if you cannot find them wrap the pork in foil. He says the leaves add flavor and moisture.
