Dragon Fruit – what does it look like on the inside

Dragon Fruit is Amazing

I always describe Dragon Fruit as, “The Cookies and Cream” fruit, though, it has the texture of a Kiwi, it looks just like ice cream when you split them open.  They grow like flowers on Cacti plants in Mexico and are known as Pitaya or Pitahaya.  They are also cultivated in Southeast Asia, the United States, Israel, Australia, Cyprus and the Canary Islands.

Where to find Dragon Fruit

I found Dragon Fruit at my local Oriental Market.  I bought the last two they had and I paid $1.98 a pound.  I think, between the two, they weighed about 1 1/2 pounds is all.  So they really didn’t cost me that much.  But people have told me that these can be ridiculously priced in standard grocery markets.  I’ve heard upwards of even $8 dollars a piece; which is crazy but if you can find them at lower price, I highly recommend you try one.  I like to squeeze lime juice over the top of mine.  So if you find them, pic up a lime or two for a little extra seasoning because the Dragon fruit tastes like a mild Kiwi.

I Love Barbacoa

In my opinion, Barbacoa is especially delicious and this recipe is no exception.  I’ve studied and sampled various recipes over the years and I believe what I’m offering you today is, as always, geared towards the best of the best.  It’s meaty with a medium to a hot kick you can control, with plenty of seasoning and spice.  And this particular dish will turn your entire home into what smells like an authentic professional restaurant.

How to make Barbacoa the Best

You’re going to find that the bulk of this Barbacoa recipe is cooked with a 4 lbs Beef Chuck, just to keep it simple.  But you can take this a step further by adding Oxtails, Cheek Meat or pork spare and baby back ribs to up the gaminess; which I highly recommend but it’s not required.  You’ll still turn out some amazing Barbacoa following this easy recipe.  You’re also going to need my Homemade Enchilada Sauce to complete this recipe but I’ve added the ingredients to the list below as well as the link to the originally post if you need it.

Kalua Pork Burrito

The Best Kalua Pork Burrito

This Kalua Pork Burrito is so refreshing it’s like a tall cold glass of water, it’s that good.  Hawaiian meets Tex-Mex and it’s not crudded up with too many spices or seasonings either.  In fact, the only added seasoning in this entire combo is Hawaiian Sea Salt and Lime Juice.  So the great thing about that is you’re completely relying on the flavors of all of the other natural ingredients.  But, if you “just gotta”, add Cumin to the pulled pork.

Pork Burrito made from Leftovers

Carnitas is what you normally here or read on a menu when you’re ordering a Pork Burrito.  But this particular burrito was the direct results of my leftover Kalua Pork that was served up on my birthday.  So whether you call it Carnitas or just another Pork Burrito, you’re going to love this Wrap.  And just so you know, the list of recipes that can be made from a Kalua Pork Roast goes on and on and I’ll list the recipes I’ve already posted down below as well as the original Kalua Pork Roast recipe.  Also, I’ve got a great Seafood Enchilada recipe that will blow you’re mind, along with the original Salsa recipe I use in this video.
