One of the most traditional Mexican dishes, it's basically pieces of pork shoulder fried in a mixture of lard and Mexican Coca-Cola, and mixed w/ orange juice, lime peels, onions, and bay leaves. The meat is crispy on the outside and juicy and tender on the inside. It is usually served w/ yellow rice, refried black beans, corn tortillas, and pickled onions, and a salsa verde is served on the side as well.
Today I went to the taqueria for lunch and had some carnitas. They were really delicious.
