Get Your Taste Buds Ready for Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo is a holiday that commemorates the victory of Mexican forces over the French occupational forces in the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.

Why not bring the festivities into your kitchen as well with some south-of-the-border flavor? We’ve got plenty of great selections for the occasion, plus delicious video recipes and culinary DIY guides.

Culinary Classic: Carnitas

One of the staples of Mexican cuisine is the slow-cooked pork dish that originated in the state of Michoacán, known as carnitas.

The traditional method of preparation calls for braising a pork shoulder in lard until tender, much in the same way the French make confit, in which duck or chicken is simmered in duck fat until tender.

The literal translation of the word carnitas is “little meats.” The preferred cut for authentic carnitas is well-marbled pork shoulder, or Boston butt, which is cut into largish chunks of about 2 inches.

Plus, everyone has their own favorite qualities in a steak. Do you prefer a steak that’s tender in texture and mild in flavor? Or bursting with beefy flavor and toothsome texture? Do you prefer the nutty richness of a dry-aged steak? Do you like the ease of a boneless cut or the added flavor of a bone-in selection?

And when selecting a steak for Father’s Day, it comes down to this: What is Dad’s steak personality?
