Agustine’s Beer & Tequila Carnitas

May/June 2010

Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (32 votes)

These pork carnitas have a little more flair and much less fat than the traditional deep-fried versions common to Mexican cuisine. Beer and dark tequila give them a very special flavor. Use leftover carnitas to make burritos, sandwiches or quesadillas.

Awesome

I browned the meat, then followed directions to tequila reduction, added everything back with the beer and heated it. Then put it in the crockpot on low for 7 hours. Refrigerated overnight. Next day I reheated and boiled the excess liquid away and shredded the meat. Brown this a little for some crunch. Used 2 servings and vacuum sealed the remaining in 2 portion bags.

This was soooooo good. I also used canned hatch tomatoes with peppers for my tomatoes.

There is more flavor with bone-in meats, usually why recipes call for bone-in.

Bone in pork shoulder? If you could find pork shoulder with the bone removed, it would save significant time preparing the meat. This was excellent. Be prepared for a long cooking time. It took me longer than what the recipe asked for.
