Carnitas freeze great! In fact, when you reheat the shredded chunks in a hot skillet you get even more crispy caramelized edges and it actually gets better.
I almost always do, but obviously I didn't on this one. I marked the individual bags and then even the larger holding bag. I must have thought I was going to user ight away - so there you go - thought went down the drain or is lost in the frost.
, Ok, so Carne Asada
is off the list - I rarely do or buy steak. But now that I've looked up Carnitas
I'm pretty sure I've done them before so I'll go with that one.
So with the 3 pkgs I have, one is now defrosted and going on the Salmon. The other 2 for Carnitas. Once the meat is made I'll store the pkg with them.
