  • We use pork roast like that all the time, and we use this season mix recipe from cooks instead of buying pre-mixed taco season:,1626,154160-255196,00.html

    We like that a lot better than the Ortega or ElPaso ones because we can tweak it the way we like (works out a LOT cheaper, too).  Roast the pork, let it rest at least 20 minutes.  Shred it between two forks (pull it).  In a pan, put the pork, the season mix from the recipe, some water, and if you want more richness, a little of the drippings from the roasting pan.  Let it simmer until the liquid reduces like a sauce and keep stirring the meat to coat it all.

  • First, I use homemade green chili. Roasted chilis, garlic, onions, salt, pepper, cumin and I use some pork in it too.

    Then I salt and pepper a large pork roast in a large roaster with onions and pour over about 4 cups of the green chili. Then I bake on 300 for 3 hours. I take out the pork and let it cool. While it is cooling I blend up the green chili, onion and broth mixture. Then I shred the roast and cover it with the green chili in the roasting pan. I put it back in the oven for 30 minutes and then stir and another 30 without a lid.

    It makes the most delicious carnitas. We serve it in taco, burritos, salads, sandwiches.
