So we've made Salsa Verde and Corn Tortillas, what do we do with them? Just kidding, I know you know what to do with them. Today we're going to make Salsa Verde Carnitas. Carnitas literally means "little meats" and is traditionally braised pork butt (it's really the shoulder and not the actual butt). After it's braised and shredded with forks it is roasted to crisp up the outside while the inside stays oh so tender.
The ingredients are few (just how I like it) Pork butt (3ish pounds), salsa verde, chicken stock, an onion, cumin, and oregano
Chop up the onion
Toss it into a large pot or dutch oven.
Place it in the pot on top of the onion
2 cups of chicken stock
2 cups of Salsa Verde
1 Tbl cumin
1 tsp oregano
It's going to look like this when it's done.
Shred the pork onto a baking sheet and place in a 400 degree oven for about 30 minutes
until it is nice and crispy on the edges
go ahead and try a piece right now. It's just too yummy to pass up.
spoon some of the sauce over the carnitas
