Bursting with rich flavor, carnitas are a staple in the Mexican kitchen, and once you’ve tried it, this fried pork will be a staple of yours. Carnitas have a unique and authentic texture and flavor rooted in the traditional cooking methods of Michoacán, a Mexican state known internationally for their delicious, melt-in-your-mouth carnitas.
Richly seasoned, slow braised and deep fried, carnitas make a flavorful and filling main course, but they are also incorporated in many other authentic Mexican dishes like tamales, tacos, tortas and burritos. Carnitas are traditionally served accompanied by cilantro, salsa and refried beans. They can easily be used to spice up American dish favorites like pulled pork sandwiches, omelets and even pizza.
