Thanks to this blog and a suggestion from Les, I made Carnitas about a week ago knowing it would yet again be a great reason to bust out Dutchie. I unfortunately failed (failed, failed) to take pics while cooking and my idea to take a picture of a taco all glammed up the day after failed when the fire came and well, I haven't returned to said fridge in about a week. All that to say, this was a pretty easy and cost effective meal. The pork was cheap and if you have time, it's a great recipe. You start off by throwing the meat into the dutch oven and then putting in the oven for 2 hrs. From there you take out the meat, and broil it for about 5-8 min to get the edges crispy. While you're doing this you discard the onion and orange and reduce the sauce in dutchie. Take the pork out, put it in a bowl, and put the reduced sauce over it. Get a couple forks and a friend, and shred the pork. The sauce really helps the flavour and moistness of the meat. Heat your tortillas and add on the fixins. Delish. This made a lot and happily fed 4 of us with a little left over for lunch the next day. (not my picture)
