Super Simple Carnitas Tacos

Super Simple Carnitas Tacos on aliceandlois.comHappy Cinco de Mayo! This has become one of our go-to dinners, it’s simple and delicious and perfect for a festive dinner tonight. Several years ago, we were on the quest to find a good carnitas recipe. After trying a few, we landed on this one, and it was our favorite! I’ve had some of the best carnitas of my life in Mexico, and this recipe gets the closest to what I like to daydream about. I know it may sound like a  strange combination, but you roast the pork in milk and orange. But the end result is melt in your mouth carnitas.

We love to create a taco bar of sorts, with garnishes like radishes, limes, cilantro, salsa, onion, avocado, and of course a myriad of hot sauces. What I love about carnitas is that it’s not overly-marinated. It’s simply roasted, so the flavors of the meat shine.the best carnitas recipe on aliceandlois.com
