Description

Authentic carnitas recipe.

Ingredients

  • 5.5 - 6 pounds pork country ribs, or pork shoulder
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • ½ cup lime juice
  • 8 whole cloves peeled garlic
  • 1.5 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • Water

Directions

  • Cut raw pork into 2 cubes and place in large non-stick dutch oven or pot.
  • Add orange juice, lime juice, whole garlic cloves, ground cumin, salt, and enough water to barely cover pork pieces.
  • Bring a pot to boil, cover with lid and simmer for two hours. Do not disturb the meat by stirring.
  • After two hours, remove pot lid and cook meat on medium, stirring occasionally until liquid is all gone and only fat remains.
  • As meat fries in rendered fat, flip meat every 3-4 minutes until most of the meat is browned.
  • Taste for salt and pepper.
