Most of the ingredients in this recipe are pretty easy to get, and you might even say the preparation itself is uncomplicated. The hard part about cooking the perfectChancho al Cilindro is to have a cylinder.
There are many theories as to when this dish became popular, and whether it’s not certain about 30 years ago it became very popular. It’s said Asian immigrants in Peru developed the cylinder as an affordable way to prepare their meals.
The cylinder looks like a round grill but is much taller and has a round grate with hooks to hang the meat from them. You can either buy the cylinder or build one yourself if you’re handy.
This recipe has a preparation time of about 9 hours and a cooking time of 90 to 120 minutes, so you might say it takes a lot of time and commitment, but once the meat is done you’ll have a mouth watering dish that serves 8 portions or even more.
Chancho al Cilindro is the perfect barbecue recipe to share with family and friends and wow them with your grilling skills. To complete the Peruvian theme of your barbecue make sure to have grilled choclo (yellow corn) and lots of rocoto sauce to add the perfect spice to your meat.
As for the potatoes you can skin them, boil them and slice them or cut them into squares. Prepare a delicious sauce with fresh cheese, evaporated milk and butter and pour it over the potatoes, it will be the perfect side dish for your meat.
