Tim's Pork Carnitas


prep 0:15       total 5:00


4 servings



3 pork steaks with bone removed and cut in half
6 cloves garlic smashed
1/4 tsp. fresh ground pepper
1 tbsp. ground cumin
2-1/2 cup water or
1 beer
1 can (4 oz.) chopped green chiles
1 dash ground red pepper or
cayenne pepper
1 pkg. store bought fajita seasoning


Toss all ingredients into a crock-pot on high for 4-6 hrs depending on
how big the steaks are. When done, take out steaks and set aside to cool just a bit so you can cut them into cubes. Pour carnitas brew into a sauce pan and reduce by 3/4, then make a batch of corn starch and water to thicken the carnitas sauce. Pour over carnitas cubes and toss under the broiler for 5-10 minutes or until you see a bit of carmelizing going on. Pull out and enjoy serve with tortillas, fresh tomatoes, onions and green peppers that have been grilled under the broiler.
