Carnitas

This is Carnitas

Well, I’m finally getting back into the swing of things as end of summer approaches. May have posted another carnitas recipe, but so what.

Who doesn’t have a pork butt on hand? This is a super simple recipe & is good for having nice meal then leftovers for the week or nice for potluck. Just a pork butt & tortilla – you have a meal.

I won’t get all up in your grill about this dish as it is my first post in a while & I need to work up to being witty / funny.

Just want to say that this is a  – drop it in & leave it meal.

  • 4 lbs pork butt
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp ancho chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp coriander
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 onion – diced

Mix all ingredients & pour on top of the pork butt.

Set the crock to 10 hrs, but will most likely only take about 8 hrs. Don’t want to let it go too long, as the meat will turn into mushy meat mess.

Serve this amazing meat concoction on small tortillas w/ shredded lettuce or cabbage. Please don’t add a bunch of cheese/sour cream or whatnot, that is so taco bell.

I served w/ good dollop of guacamole/chips & corn on cob (yellow & white for good measure) on the side.

Hell yeah, back the crock up!

Enjoy.
