Took advantage of the sale on pork shoulders and picked me up 2 two packs.
Cut about 6 lbs to use for carnitas
Placed the pork in to some lard heat on high to get some color
Then lowered the heat, added some garlic, a sliced orange, bay leaves and a couple of cups of water and simmer till the water evaporated
After the water evaporated I added a Coke with real sugar, and evap condensed milk and cooked till the pork was fork tender. Then cooked the pork in a CI skillet till the pork to get a little more texture on the outside.
Made tacos with cilantro, onion, avocado, and salsa for garnish, and nopales and refried beans for sides.
Ground the rest of the pork and looked up a Jimmy Dean clone recipe for breakfast sausage and sort of followed it.
This morning I cooked a little of the sausage, threw in a few eggs and cheese
and made breakfast tacos
