Family Dinner – 11/20/09 – Traditional vs. Tradicional

Posted: November 20th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: family dinner meals | Comments Off on Family Dinner – 11/20/09 – Traditional vs. Tradicional

Here are your recipes from this week:


– 4 McCormick Taco Seasoning packets
– 3lbs Ground Beef
– Hard Taco Shells (safeway brand)
– Pace Picante Sauce
– ICEBERG Lettuce
– Cheddar Cheese
– Sour Cream

Just follow the instructions on the seasoning packet, dummy!

I sort of combined a few different recipes for the carnitas, so I’ll try to recall what I did:

4lb pork butt, big chunks of fat trimmed, cut into 1 inch chunks
2 cloves garlic cloves, minced
2 whole shallots, cut in half
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. coriander
1 tsp MEXICAN oregano
1 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. cumin
1/4 cup red wine
2 1/2 cups fresh orange juice
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 bay leaves
1 cup milk
3/4 cup MEXICAN coke

Combine salt,  coriander, chili powder, oregano, black pepper, and cumin.  Coat pork chunks in spice mixture, and let sit in refridgerator for ~2 hours.

Preheat oven to 300.  Heat about 2 teaspoons in a dutch oven and brown pork in batches (two sides).  Use new oil for each batch.  Add all the pork back to the dutch oven and add garlic, shallots, wine, orange juice, cilantro, and bay leaves.  Add water to cover the pork, cover, and place in oven at 300 degrees for 2-2 1/2 hours.

Remove dutch oven from oven and place on high heat on stovetop.  Adjust oven to 425.  Reduce liquid to about half, add milk.  Reduce liquid again to about half, and add coke.  Reduce liquid to about a cup (15-20 minutes).

Remove bay leaves and spoon pork onto cookie sheet (leaving as much liquid in the pot as possible).  Pull pork with a fork and spread as evenly on cookie sheet as possible.  Bake pork for about 10 minutes, stir the pork, and bake for another 10 minutes or so (until meat browns and becomes slightly crispy).  Add meat back to dutch oven with reduced liquid.

Serve with:

– Corn Tortillas
– Queso fresco
– Sliced Radishes
Chopped Tomato-Serrano Salsa
Charred Tomatillo Guacamole
Roasted Tomatillo Salsa
