Carnitas- Mexican Pork

By January 30, 2013

Follow me on:

carnitas2.jpgIn Mexico there are a few standard meat fillings for tacos and burritos and Carnitas is one of them. Letting the meat "fry" in it's own rendered fat is the most important step and if you skip this step you will just have chunks of cooked pork. The long simmering time loosens up the pork and makes it fork tender. Try it next time you make tacos or burritos or enjoy it as a main dish topped with onions and cilantro.

I love the pork this way! I also love to serve a salsa over it, to make the dinner complete rice and beans!
