2. Barreado

With traditional preparation methods going back some 300 years, the Barreado is a meaty feast fit for a king. One of its finest features is that it keeps its rich meaty flavor, even when it is reheated. Made in a clay pot, the meat is cooked for almost 24 hours, giving it time to shred and release thick flavors. Each pan is sealed with a dough made from flour and water before cooking, and the dish is served with bananas and oranges, along with banana rum on the side.
