Dutch Oven Carnitas

These Dutch oven carnitas are easy to make and exceptionally flavorful. Slow braised with minimal ingredients, they are a bit of a healthier version of traditional fried carnitas. They’re great for carnitas tacos, atop your favorite salad or warm bowl dish, and in a burrito.

Add all the ingredients to a Dutch oven. Bring stock to a boil, then remove from heat and cover with a lid, and place in oven to bake for a couple hours.

Remove lid and cook  until most of the liquid has evaporated and the pork has somewhat caramelized.

Shred the meat more if desired and serve in tortillas or over rice and beans.
