Fast & Easy Pork Carnitas Recipe 2010-02-12 13:53:30

Ingredients

  1. 2 pounds boneless pork shoulder, cut into 1-inch pieces
    4 garlic cloves, minced
    Coarse salt and ground pepper
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1/2 cup fresh orange juice
    1/2 cup milk
    12 corn tortillas, warmed
    Fresh cilantro leaves, thinly sliced onion, diced avocado, and lime wedges, for serving

Directions

  1. In a large Dutch oven or heavy pot, combine pork, garlic, and 8 cups water and season with salt and pepper. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook, covered, until pork is tender, 40 to 45 minutes. Drain well.
  2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Add pork, orange juice, and milk and cook, stirring occasionally, until liquid has evaporated and pork is browned, 8 to 12 minutes. Serve carnitas in tortillas, with cilantro, onion, avocado, and lime wedges.

Serves 6.
