Carnitas comes to us from the state of Michoacan. It’s typically prepared with pork meat submerged in lard and cooked in a large copper cazo/pot for long periods of time, and served shredded on tortillas, tortas, and more.  This dish's flavor profile includes bold savory meat with notes of tangy citrus and aromatic oregano. Recipes vary from family to region including notes of marjoram, peppercorns and sometimes even include soda.  

Some taqueros use their trusted wooden blocks and cleaver to shred and chop shreds of Carnitas, pile into a tortilla, and top each taco with diced onion, minced cilantro, and salsa of choice (we prefer salsa roja).
