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.

Poor Customer Service

The picture indicates it comes with 2 packages of Carnitas in the box, I only received one. I sent 3 emails with pictures to customer service and never received a response. Very disappointing

What happened?

I loved these so much I recommended them to family and friends. I just stocked the freezer with it from Costco. The last two I opened have been tough and inedible. What happened?

The best carnitas

When I bought them the first time I was skeptical. After I tasted them, I really couldn't believe how delicious they were. That was over a year ago, and the Del Real carnitas are now a staple in our house. They are honestly some of the best carnitas I've ever eaten.
