carnitas - thanks for the inspiration! (pic)

gordon wing | Jun 21, 200609:08 PM     16

after reading some carnitas recipes the other day I decided that it was time to make my first carnitas. there was a special at the store on boneless country style ribs so it seemed like an additional sign. I cooked the chunks of pork down with water, orange juice, salt & pepper, a bit of paprika, cumin, and some Buffalo chipotle sauce .... let it all cook down.
The bottom of the pan started to scorch before I got any nice brown spots on the meat but when I fired up my wok I got some nice color very easily.
It's a warm night and I'm looking forward to sitting out on the deck with my carnitas, some freshly made salsa, avacado and some tortillas. thanks for the inspiration!
