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.

Mirepoix: The Building Block of Flavor

In cultures around the world, cooked dishes have a very common element that links them in a very significant way: a foundation of aromatics—a blend of vegetables that contribute aroma, depth of flavor, nuance, and richness.

Probably the most prominent of these in American cuisine is borrowed from the French: mirepoix, a combination of diced vegetables of 2 parts onion to 1 part each of celery and carrots.
