Carnitas means “little meats” the name is given to the pork when this is fried first in its own fat, and braised after adding water or orange juice, cola, beer and in some places even milk.
The traditional way of cooking Carnitas is adding the whole pork in a copper pot, which disperses the heat evenly. Different states in the country uses different condiments like, salt, chili, cumin, oregano, garlic, bay leaf or thyme.
