Review for La Perla del Mayab Achiote Verde Bistek
October 26, 2010
I really like this barra to add to the marinade for beef fajitas or other beef recipes. I think the red achiote is really good for pork, chicken and fish, but this achiote verde is much nicer on beef. The flavors just seem to meld very nicely. As with the red barra, a little goes a long way, so I generally use much much less than is suggested on the package, usually 1/5-1/6 barra for a marinade that is made with 1/3-1/2 c lime juice or other citrus.
