CARNITAS What is a Carnita? What's the recipe? Recipe Ingredients:

1 4 - 5 pound Lean boneless pork loin roast, with excess fat removed
1 cup salsa verde
1 Large onion, minced
4 cloves Garlic, minced
1 tbsp Seasoned salt
2 tsp Pepper Place pork roast in 9 x 14 pan. Rub garlic into the roast. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover with salsa verde and onions. Loosely cover the pan with aluminum foil. Bake at 300 degrees for four and a half hours, or until fork tender.Remove roast from oven. Cool until you can touch the meat comfortably. Remove from pan and place on cutting board. Skim fat off pan juices. Using two forks, shred the pork. Remove fat from meat. When all meat is shredded, return it to the pan and mix the pan juices thoroughly into the pork.Return to oven. Cook, uncovered for 30 minutes or until pork is crispy on top. Remove from oven. Turn pork. Return to oven and cook another 20 minutes, until pork is crispy on top and there is almost no liquid left in the pan. The History of the "Little Meats" Traditional carnitas is then made by process of simmering the meat until tender over a very low heat. Once appropriate tenderness is achieved, the heat is turned up and the outside of the pork begins to crisp. The carnitas can then be cooled and shredded. Carnitas is a fabulous dish in Mexican cuisine that usually uses pork. Type of pork used is often front sections of the hog or pork shoulder. These cuts are braised or roasted for a long time, sometimes the length of a day. Presented to you By:
