Hey this is really delicious

This one I saw like an extra goodie in Once upon a time in Mexico... Well Johnny Depp loved this recipe and killed for it, and it´s really interesting to see how it´s done. In Godfellas and Godfather we saw mobsters cooking and well at least we see an director cooking, fun and fast worth watching. Robert Rodriguez is one of the best cool director´s and Once upon a time in Mexico is full of cool bonus like this one. Actually you can understand the motivations on Johnny Depp´s character after tasting this pork. Watch it, cook it, enjoy it
