First, I was so skeptical about the cooking method I was sure I'd have to make something else, but it worked very well. I had ordered chipotle powder specifically for this recipe, but they shipped me Pasilla powder. I used it any way and it was very flavorful. I was able to buy boneless loin of pork for a much better price than butt so I used that. My only issue was it took over two hours for the liquid to cook down. But I will make carnitas this way again. I couldn't find fresh tomatillos here so I used salsa verde I had put up last fall and mixed it with a bit of sour cream to tone down the spiciness. Thanks, Mazola, this is a nice recipe.
