Other than a prime aged steak, Carnitas are my favorite meat. How can you go wrong with Mexican spiced fried pork, right? Even if this is the first time you’ve ever heard of Carnitas, I strongly suggest you give this recipe a go. You won’t be sorry!
This particular recipe truly is authentic. To have good carnitas you have to have the citrus – this recipe calls for oranges. Some people use shoulder for the carnitas, personally I prefer the pork butt which is exactly what this recipe calls for.
