Lamb shoulder is the ideal cut for this Pueblan-style barbecue. We love this version, which is adapted from Steven Raichlen's The Barbecue Bible (Workman, 1998), and is served with a refreshing tomatillo salsa.
This is a Northern Mexican recipe that is adapted from a recipe by Rick Bayless. This uses a chuck roast and is made in the crock pot. My DBF asks me to make this again and again. Serve it with rice, sour cream, beans, and warmed tortillas.
