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.

Love the food, disappointed with the Amount in each package,

Experience was disappointing. I ordered based on the great experience from Sam’s Club. Really good food. All arrived very quickly, but the package I received was half the amount of what I purchase in the store for the same price, plus I paid for shipping. Doubt I’ll be ordering again.

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!
