Carnitas are one of my favorite things to eat. There are many carnitas recipes that are basically braised in a liquid. This is a more traditional recipe where the meat is slow cooked or confit in lard. Very indulgent but incredibly delicious. Perfect for tacos that are paired with a bright salsa verde, pickled onions and lime. If you have the time I recommend seasoning the pork with salt the day before for the juiciest and crispiest carnitas ever! I used a combination of pork shoulder and belly but pork shoulder alone works great. First we slow cook the meat until tender and then we remove the pork and strain some of the fat so we can fry it until crispy.
