Not true Carnitas. This is more like a soup and when I removed 2+ cups of liquid it was more like a stew. It had nice spice but other than that it is horribly bland. I had to add tons of salt to the finished product. I imagine salting it up and frying it up afterwords would make it a truer Carnitas dish. I followed the recipe to the "T" but it needed lots of work after it was done to make it enjoyable. It was absolutely tender but true Carnitas are much larger "chunks" and you would pull it apart on your plate. I have NEVER had true Carnitas that were made with the chiles....those would be added later as a condiment. 2 stars because it WAS salvageable. All the 5 stars here probably have not ever had TRUE Carnitas. I won't be trying this recipe again. The picture IS NOT a true representation of the end product.
