Seasoned with classic Mexican herbs and spices such as cumin, chilli powder and oregano, this easy carnitas recipe results in tender, juicy pork that can be used not just in tacos, but to top nachos, in burritos or empanadas, or even to top a salad. There will be plenty of broth left over once the pork is done braising, don’t let it go to waste as it’s full of slow-cooked, meaty flavour. You can keep it in the fridge for up to 3 days or freeze it and use in place of meat stock in your favourite recipes!
