In Santiago, Chile, chef Juan Pablo Mellado Arana of Las Cabras serves these pork shanks, burnished red from merkén and piquant red pepper paste, with rice for a substantial lunch. To check the doneness of the pork without opening the packet, simply pierce the packet with a paring knife; it should go in with no restistence.
