Carnitas – Mexican Pulled Pork

Carnitas – mexican pulled pork

Who needs a little Mexican sunshine?

This awesome and super easy recipe is the beginning of all sorts of great dinner ideas! Make a lot of it on purpose, because it freezes very well.

It’s not just pulled pork, it’s pulled pork that’s been crisped under the broiler for added layer of flavor!

And don’t skip on the Coke, it’s the secret ingredient! But if you really can’t, replace with chicken broth and 2 Tbsp brown sugar.

When you’re running out of dinner ideas, Carnitas will be there, waiting to be folded in a taco, rolled in a burrito, smashed in a sandwich or topping a salad!

Just pair it with the usual suspects; avocado, lettuce, salsa, hot sauce, cheese, pickled veggies… or whatever pairs with sweet, crisp and tender pork!

Don’t have a slowcooker? Use your instapot, or cook it in the oven, at 230 F, in a dutchoven!

Bon appetit!
