Expert Tips

Prepare the hibiscus tea like any other infusion; add dry flowers to a cup and soak in hot water until deep red in color. To make concentrated tea, you only need 1/2 cup of boiling water. The remaining cooked flowers can be ground and used in the barbeque sauce as well if you wish.

Directions

  • 1 To prepare the meat sazón, mix the ground hibiscus with the salt, pepper, cumin, and garlic. Rub the meat with a little olive oil and add the sazón until the filet is completely covered. Store the seasoned meat in a sealed plastic container and refrigerate for 15-20 minutes to let the spices soak in and enhance the flavor of the meat.
  • 2 To prepare the barbeque sauce, combine the hibiscus tea, ketchup, sugar, vinegar, and chipotle pepper purée in a small pot and cook for 10-15 minutes, or until the sauce thickens a little. Salt can be added to taste.
  • 3 To cook the meat, turn on your grill and wait until the heat reaches 400°F. I like to cook pork fdirectly over the flame for five minutes on each side. Afterwards, I move the meat to an area with less heat on the grill until it is finished cooking. When the filet reaches an internal temperature of 145°F, it’s ready. Remove from heat and let the meat sit for a few minutes before cutting to preserve the juices. To serve, cut into portions and dress with the barbeque sauce.
