I can hardly believe it but jonesing for… turned 3 years old last week! Looking through all my recipes and photos was a wonderful little trip down memory lane until I realized I was missing something huge. Quite possibly one of the most important recipes I’ve ever written.
When I was a senior in college every weekend (well, it felt like every weekend) I would make carnitas at my friend’s apartment on Saturday afternoon so it would be ready and waiting for the weekly party festivities that evening. We’d eat tacos, drink margaritas, keep reheating the microwaveable queso, and devour our bodyweight in tortillas chips. Most of my fondest memories of college revolve around those nights, and thus, revolve around carnitas.
I’ve shared this recipe with my college friends but realized I’d never shared it on my blog, which is just a shame! It seems so fitting I would finally share one of my all-time favorite things in celebration of my blog turning 3, so here it is. It’s dead simple and just takes a little time and patience in the end. Just be sure to get a bone-in pork butt (it could also be labeled pork shoulder roast) – it makes all the difference in the world. I hope you create as many fond memories of this dish as I have. And here’s to 3 more years of jonesing for… !
