One good thing about working from home due to COVID-19 is that I suddenly have time to try out recipes that have a long cook-time– now that I’m home all day it’s no problem to babysit something on the stove for a few hours before dinner! I flipped through my bookmarked recipes for something to try on a drizzly day, and came up with pork carnitas!
Carnitas are chunks of pork butt or shoulder, simmered for hours and then crisped up a bit over high heat. These couldn’t have been easier and were amazingly delicious, particularly when spooned onto warmed corn tortillas and heaped with a bunch of taco fixings. Once again, I got the recipe from Smitten Kitchen, so I knew it would be good!
I can’t wait until this whole social distancing thing is over and I can make a huge batch of these for a party.
