Default Carnitas

Who has the best carnitas recipe? I have too many pork roast in the freezer. Ready to try something new. I know where I can buy excellent carnitas but that doesn't help me empty my freezer.

Let's see those recipes

Default Carnitas

If you make this, resist the urge to slap your mama.

Cube you roast and into the pot
Add 3 cups water
1/2 cup orange juice
6-8 cloves garlic
2 bay leaves
1 tbs Mexican oregano(not Italian,not being mean spirited but this ain't the place for it)
1 chopped onion
Salt& pepper to taste
1bottle of cola, I prefer Jarritos because it's natural cane sugar. Adds a better taste then high fructose corn syrup.

Bring to a boil in covered pot
Reduce to simmer for 2 hours
Remove cover and continue for 1 more hour
Shred it and your ready to make tacos with cilantro and cheese

For that crispy carnitas, you can either fry your boiled pork for 5 minutes in oil. Or into the oven @ 350 for 10-15 minutes.
Making this on a first or second date might just result in marriage. Or at least get you to first base

I'm a fan of carnitas tacos. But you have to use corn tortillas heated in a pan or on the grill until they have some good toast points. And they have to be white corn. Use 2 per taco.

Good canitas need nothing. If I add anything it's usually just some cilantro, onion, and tapitio.

When you work for a tortilla manufacturer and over 95% of the employees are Hispanic you get some great authentic food every now and then.

Best way in my opinion is taco form. Warm corn tortilla. A little lime juice fresh cilantro and chopped white onion. For salsa, green tomatillo salsa goes best with carnitas.

We had these last night in taco-sized white corn tortillas, with cilantro, crumbled queso fresco and splash of Tapatio sauce. Just wonderful and my wife loved them!

I usually only see it in the liter bottles. Jarritos sold its distribution to Columbia and they leave a lot in the back room of the major grocery stores or just don't sell it because the focus on the fruity ones.

They have it at our local Thriftway store. Also, most of the local Mexican grocery stores should have it I'd think....

Still gonna be delicious even if you use a can of coke. No need to follow recipe exactly. Most Mexican food I make I just use what's in the cupboard and never a complaint. Experiment ,I am sure you'll be happy with it. Cane sugar just adds a little different flavor perhaps you won't even notice.

Williams that recipe is spot on. Just what I was looking for.

Made tacos tonight with Don Pancho garlic and Herb flatbread, a little guacamole, cilantro, cotija cheese, cabbage, and a squirt of lime. Photo was before cabbage was added.

Served with elote, grilled Mexican street corn. Corn topped with a mix of mayo, sour cream, cotija cheese, cilantro, garlic and chili powder.

Washed it all down with a michelada. Corona, tomato juice, splash of soy sauce, garlic pepperoncini juice, and a little lime juice. Topped off with 2 garlic stuffed green olives and 2 garlic pepperoncini. Sorry no picture, it was half gone before it thought of photos.

Made this again tonight. Didn't have any cola on hand so I subbed in a Dr. Pepper. Worked just as good as a cola. Made chile rellenos and elotes (Mexican street corn) as sides. We all left the table fat and happy.

Did Señor Trujillo's recipe again yesterday and came away with some insights. First, I couldn't find a loin, so I used a shoulder butt roast. Trimming out all the fat and gristle took a lot of time, so will hold out for a loin next time. Bill calls for two-hour simmer with lid and one hour with lid off. I extended that to about two hours lid off -- cooking the liquid all the way down. Have to watch this closely as it would be easy to burn it once the moisture is mostly gone. Really good on heated white corn taco with cado, cilantro, lettuce, shredded Tillamook and lime juice. REALLY good!

I might try this gal's method to crisp up the pork bits next time:

Oh yeah, Bill, crisping up the shredded pork is the cat's meow! That's what we do and yummy. I prefer my pork carnitas with chopped onion, cilantro, fresh squeezed lime juice and salsa Verde sauce on it.

I smoked a shoulder for 2-hours with my pork rub then put it in the crock pot with something like the above recipe. Then finished in the oven to crisp up the edges. Fantastic.
The left overs went into the tortilla soup a couple days later. Also fantastic.

Making these tonight. Cutting the carbs, so no tortillas. I'm planning to serve over a bed of shredded cabbage. Maybe a slaw of some kind. I still have a couple hours to figure it out.

Default Re: Carnitas

Awesome as usual!! I substituted the regular soda for a diet. And added 1 Tsp of cayanne, 1/2 Tsp paprika, 1/2 Tsp chili powder, and 1 extra bay leaf. Served it over top of a spicy lime coleslaw, topped it all off with a little guacamole. If I do it again I would add some pico de gallo.

Coleslaw dressing was done on the fly, no recipe that I was following. Recipe below is a best guess, I just threw stuff in, tasted and adjusted as I went.

3/4 c Mayo
2/3 c sour cream
1/4c lime juice
2Tsp tapaito,
1Tsp vinegar
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp cayanne
1/2 tsp smoked paprika.

Bill I saved the broth from last night and skimmed the fat and used it tonight to make a ramenish type soup, Mexiramen. I added some mini pork meat balls, a little celery, carrot, and onion, with Shirataki noodles. When I went to put my dishes in the sink, I realized I forgot the cilantro and lime. That would have made the dish.
