  • @caliking It looks awesome to me. I'd be a magician and make it disappear in 2 bites. If the crowd got rowdy I'd do it in 1.

    Carnitas on the back patio.  Smells are worth the price of entry.t
    Recipe? This looks fantastic.
    Just about the easiest thing ever:

    Pork shoulder or butt.
    Trim the hard fat off, but don't go crazy.
    Cube meat into roughly 3"x3" cubes
    Season with salt and pepper
    Put in in lightly oiled cast iron
    Fill up the cast iron pan with a mexican soda.  Either Fanta or coke that uses cane sugar.  Fill up roughly half way.
    Put in egg at 250-300 (either direct or with deflector).  Deflector is a bit safer.
    Once pork begins to brown then flip it.  The fat will render out and the pork with braise in its juices.  I usually flip it 4 or 5 times during a cook.
    Once it is tender enough, just break it up and shred.  Mix it in with all the juices.  Don't be afraid of getting some crispy edges.
    Very basic and always a crowd pleaser.

    @caliking - looks great so the taste must have been of the chart.  boudain and jalas, a winning combo right there.

    Thanks. They’re 8oz jars. A little on the large side for individual servings. The wife and I split one. May be better suited for chocolate pots……

    Nice pie, and if that doesn't say "dedication", then I'm not sure what does.

    @acn, also interested in the deets on those pans please, was steaming involved by any chance? I'm trying to improve my steaming config for whole packer Montreal smoked meat without trimming.

    No problem.  It is crazy easy comfort food; we fill a 9x13 baking dish about 2/3-3/4 of the way up the sides with sliced cabbage (that could be a full smaller cabbage, or 1/2 of a large).  In a skillet, we saute 1-1.5 lbs ground meat (last night was some ground turkey and some bulk breakfast sausage that we wanted to get out of the fridge), and add a diced onion, 2-3 celery stalks, and 4-6 garlic cloves.  Once the meat is mostly done and the veg is soft we pour in a 24 oz jar of a decent store bought salsa and stir to combine and warm through.  Then pour that over the cabbage, cover the baking dish with foil and stick in a 350 oven for 45 minutes.  After that, remove the foil, add 1.5 -2 cups grated cheese (last night was just cheddar, but this is also a great way to use up little bits of cheese in your fridge, as long as it melts well, it'll work) and put back in the oven for about 10 mintues to melt the cheese.  I didn't do it last night because it was getting late, but more often than not I'll crank the broiler on to brown the top of the cheese too.

    The stuff will steam some when it is foiled, but the pan the casserole is in is just a plain 9x13 pan.  I do put it on a half-sheet pan just in case there is any bubbling/spillage, but it was only on the perforated pan because SWMBO Jr made cookies to take to school, so the regular pans were still a bit dirty.  I don't really remember why we have the perforated pans, but SWMBO needed them for some reason, so we have 2 from a restaurant store.
