I taught a Mexican cooking class yesterday and carnitas was one of the menu items on the cooking agenda. I've got several recipes I like, but I've been eyeing the recipe in Roberto Santibañez's book Truly Mexican for a while and I wasn't sure a cooking class would be the best place to test it out for the first time. BUT...I've eaten enough of Roberto's food and cooked enough from this cookbook to take that leap of faith unveil it on some unsuspecting students.
Ever so glad I did! These were some of the best carnitas I think I've had in a good long time and that includes the ones I had in Michoacan, Mexico this past March. I can heartily recommend this recipe from Truly Mexican. Not only is it truly Mexican, it's truly good.
