Cook's Note: Have your butcher cut the pork into 4 pieces.
Rub in some salt and pepper into the pork pieces. Marinate in the juice of the oranges, oregano
, thyme, garlic cloves
and condensed milk overnight in the refrigerator.
Heat the pork lard
, some salt and the granulated garlic in a large pot over medium heat. The lard should be at a mild boil. Add the pork and slow cook, stirring regularly, until tender, about 1 1/2 hours. Place the pork
skin in with the pork until it goes from pink to brown, about 15 minutes. Remove and dice
both the pork and pork skin.
Serve the carnitas
in a tortilla or on a plate with chopped cilantro
, diced onion
and lime slices.
