    Weeknight Carnitas...

    5lb pork shoulder, pressure cook at 2nd line for 60 minutes...


    Giant radishes from my farmshare program...and a little usuba action...


    So, not great...but not unacceptable product...for 4-5th time I've used the knife.


    Gotta switch to the DTN for the avocado and Jalepeno...



    Whisked within an inch of its life....


    take the shoulder out, add the homemade chili powder from a couple of weeks ago, and some achiote paste (salt + pepper to taste)...


    Shred all the pork, with a fork....


    reduce by 2/3 to 3/4...


    Add to shredded pork...


    Serve on toasted corn tortillas with melting cheese, radishes, avocado mousse, and salsa ranchero...


    seriously...some of the best tacos I've ever had. Thanks to Modern Cuisine for the recipe + technique on the pork..the rest is my made-up bullsh1t!

    Well, LRAFB might just be the place for you...cheap land, and plenty of it. Plus: at least one kick@$$ knife guy to hang with!

    Interesting. I don't know much about Mexican/Latino cuisine, actually. What's the difference between Pastor and Carnitas?

    Carnitas usually have a fried component and pasteur is pulled pork or beef stewed in a spicy sauce. Love the pressure cooker huh

    hmmm...I stand corrected then. Tacos Pastor (al pastor?) then!

    So loving the PC. Really glad you turned me on to it...and glad I splurged on the 8qt unit too. Actually, I bought a 2nd one as a gift for a friend!
