Homemade Carnitas Tacos
, on Flickr
First melted 2 pounds of Lard
Added 5 pounds of Boston Butt cut into 2 inch cubes.
Made a bundle of 1 medium onion, 1 bunch of thyme and a few bay leaves. Added this to the pot.
1/2 litter of made in Mexico Coca Cola (real sugar)
Added 1 and 1/2 Tablespoons of Sea Salt
Enough water to cover.
Bring everything up to a slow boil. Need to slowly cook off the water to make the meat tender.
When the water is almost gone and the meat starts to fry take out the bundle with the onion.
When the meat has a nice THIN crust remove the meat and place it on a rack to cool.
