Slow-Cooked Pork

Carnitas, a type of slow cooked pork, is a household staple in the Mexican kitchen with its unique and authentic texture and flavor rooted in the traditional cooking methods from Michoacan. Richly seasoned and slow braised, Carnitas make a flavorful and filling main course, but they are also used as ingredients in many other authentic Mexican dishes like tamales, tacos, tortas and burritos. Carnitas are traditionally served accompanied by cilantro, salsa and refried beans.

The Carnitas are Delicious!

Here in Oregon it is so difficult to find great Mexican food. Not anymore! I am so glad to have found Del Real Foods. So far everything we have tried; we love. Even their Salsa is one of the best we have ever had...including Mexico!

food and packaging

The food was great, but the packing material was not recyclable and, understandably, a lot of it for insulation and cold packs.
