A Quick Overview Of Carnitas
‘Carne’ is the Spanish word for ‘meat’. ‘Carnitas’ means ‘little meats’. Carnitas is a dish consisting of slowly braised cuts of shoulder of pork (when I say slow, I mean anywhere between 3 and 12 hours). The meat is cooked until it is extremely tender. It is then pulled apart using forks, or by hand, and roasted to crisp and caramelize it. The resulting carnitas can be used in tortas, tortillas, burritos, or even sandwiches. Usual accompaniments include guacamole, sour cream, and salsa. Carnitas are considered a part of Mexican and Tex-Mex cuisines.
