Manteca Fried Carnitas Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
I make authentic carnitas by frying the chunked pork with salt in a large cast iron skillet. I add lard as needed and have never needed more than 1/2 cup. When it's all cooked I pour in green or red salsa and sizzle it up for a minute or two. Done! No need for a gallon of fat!
