Carnitas, a type of slow cooked pork, are a household staple in the Mexican kitchen. Its unique and authentic texture and flavor is rooted in the traditional cooking methods from Michoacan. Richly seasoned, 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.

Best carnitas I’ve ever had

I’m Mexican and I’ve tried carnitas from taco trucks and supermarkets and these are by far the best I’ve ever had. Every other ones always have too much fat but this one is mostly meat. Dank Asf.
