THE BEST OF THE BEST OF MEXICAN FOOD!
Every tortilla’s dream is to be filled with carnitas!
Seasoned meat is slow cooked until tender before gently teasing apart with forks and then broiled to crispy perfection.
These are the perfect combination of slightly sweet & savoury, and juicy but crispy!
Just TEN MINUTES to prep, and so much flavor thanks to the slow cooking or Instant pot which makes the meat melt-in-your-mouth delicious!
Traditionally carnitas are made with pork, but I usually make them with lamb and they come out wonderful with beef or chicken as well.
What cuts of meat do I recommend?
- Pork – Shoulder
- Lamb – Shoulder
- Beef – Chuck Roast
- Chicken – Thigh
This dish tastes great at room temp or hot and can be served up in a number of different ways.
My favorite, wrapped up in a warm corn tortilla or crisp up my paleo paratha in the oven for the perfect grain-free replacement.
Don’t forget the toppings!
- Pickled onion
- Sliced jalapeño
- Creamy avocado lime dressing
- Sour cream
- Hot sauce
- Mango salsa
No matter how you serve this up, its straight up delish!!
