Delicious TacosPosted: January 16, 2014
been a while since i did any food porn, and since i cooked last night i thought i’d take a few pics. i had a craving for carnitas, which is shredded mexican pork. i went out and bought a 4lb. shoulder. let’s do ‘dis.
1 pork shoulder (or butt, whatever)
1 med onion (chopped)- reserve 1/4 cup
1 med tomato (diced)
1 cup cilantro
3 can’s rotel tomato
3-4 TBS cumin
5-6 chiptles (in adobo sauce)
place shoulder in pot (fat side down). add about 2-3 inches of water. add everything except diced tomatoes and one can of rotel. bring to a boil. drop heat to low and cover. let cook 1 1/2 hour per pound. after half the allotted time, flip the shoulder and cover. when you can press into the meat and it gives, remove it from the pot. place in and pull it apart with forks. add the can rotel and stir. add more salt and cumin if you want.
place pan under a broiler for 5 minutes. remove and stir then place back under broiler for 3-4 minutes. stir. here are the results.
i rock mine like this.
