Zowers!! Carbs would actually detract from this dish!! It was an outstanding mix of several recipes, so I guess it's mine.
I'll work up the recipe and post it in the proper place tomorrow.
It wouldn't be limited to the Carnitas I had frozen from Costco. Gr.beef,shredded chicken, or just pulled pork would work nicely.

We got a deal on T-bone steaks last week - bought three for $7.99 a pound - and had the second one tonight (the third is frozen). Salted it for about an hour and seared it in my cast-iron skillet to medium rare, then we sliced it and shared it. Served it with skillet-braised green beans and baked potatoes. Yummy

Wow, K, that looks worthy of half a pan for sure!

Our dinner party this evening went well.
We had:
Assorted aritsanal cheeses, crackers, wine and beer to start.
Our buffet dinner included a supped up salad, garlic bread, and two
kinds of Lasagna (our guest is a vegetarian).
Our dessert buffet consisted of homemade Old Fashion Gingerbread with whipped cream, assorted homemade cookies, coffee and after dinner drinks and good conversation.

I sent our guest home with enough leftovers for his lunch at work tomorrow, that adorable Giant Gingerbread Boy Cookie as well a zip-bag of those other cookies. We were sorry that we didn't get to meet his new girl friend, but there'll be other chances.

Funny, we started to talk about how folks he knows won't make Lasagna because it costs too much to make...
After he left, DH asked me how much did I spend on our main dish.
I guessed about $16USD, but that made I figured about 16 servings... a dollar a serving, that's not expensive. Yes, I put out some dough, but it pays off.

Cheryl, those shrimp look delish! I have asparagus, and we love oven roasted potato wedges. IF I run out of food to use up this week, I'll certainly reprise your meal.

Kayelle, not only do the carnitas look yummy, I love your Polish pottery dish. I have an oval one and try to use it any chance I get.

Saturday night/Sunday morning I made a huge batch of potato salad and an almost-huge bowl of coleslaw so that I could clean and decorate, knowing all I had to do for dinner was run out for fried fish. My hip barked at me so much today I didn't get much done. However, we ate very well with my fixin's and some fried cod and bay scallops. I have a generous amount of both side dishes to use for another couple of meals.

Since I was having back issues, Craig made the meatballs, slaw and sauce we use for banh mi, but we used bib lettuce to make wraps instead of sandwiches.
