Pork Carnitas

So my favorite food in the universe is Mexican food. I JUST LOVE IT! I am a regular at Austin Grill in Old Town. Whenever my family comes to visit we immediately head to Austin Grill for chips, queso, guac…and CARNITAS!! My cousin is a big fan of carnitas and always orders them when we go. I stumbled across this recipe from Rubies and Radishes and thought they looked easy enough for me to tackle. The end result was fantastic. Even my three year old ate them all up! I will be making this for family when they stop by for a night to celebrate Christmas with us.

My only note is that I couldn’t get all the cooking liquids to evaporate so I just used a slotted spoon when I was serving. If this happens to you and you want to crisp up the meat, put it on a cookie sheet and put it under the broiler for a minute or two. I think you could also easily make this in a crockpot on low for 8 hours or high for 4. If you do this your liquid definitely will not evaporate so use a slotted spoon to serve.
