Taco Tuesday was a success! Not sure that you all know how much I love pork but here is another set of pics from my favorite tacos. Carnitas for as-authentic-as-I-can-make street tacos. You can see my recipe here. The only thing I really did differently was to broil it in the same pan rather than on a sheet tray and I sprinkled on a bunch of my chorizo seasoning that I have for making sausage before cooking. They were most delicious!
I pickled some jalapenos too. Half cup each of water and white vinegar, a tablespoon of sugar, big pinch of kosher salt and a heaping teaspoon of chopped garlic. I boiled that together and poured over the sliced jalapenos and let marinate for 3 days in the fridge.
Nice, refreshing mojito with fresh mint, lime juice and zest, sugar, Captain Morgan’s white rum and soda water to cool me off. I could drink these all night but that might be dangerous so three was my limit then I switched to beer. 🙂 Hope ya liked the pics…stop by anytime. STOP DROOLING NOW!
