“When I was taught to make Carnitas, the wonderful Woman told me it HAD to be simmered in lard. YES it was very good, but not too good for you :( I have experimented and came up with one that suits DH and my tastes (also lifestyle....crockpot!!) This recipe makes alot, but freezes very well. I put it in ziploc bags and just grab one out of the freezer for tacos, burritos and it also makes great taco salads!”
