Carnitas

When I was thinking of orange juice as an ingredient, the first recipe that popped into my head was this one – Carnitas.  This is very similar to the recipe I use and I love to make a huge batch of these and make tamales . . which I need to do before it gets too hot to spend a whole day cooking.

This is truly one of those fix and forget it meals.

At this point, I could eat the meat by the  handful!

There’s so much you can do with this meat.

Yep, tamales are going to be made soon!

    That’s different from our Carnitas recipe, too. I make homemade pico de gallo to go with it.
