Here's how it looks in context of a meal
Here's how it looks when you are getting the crispy goodness and over-stir.
This is perhaps the easiest meal/meat preparation ever, and it is so versatile. Add some salsa and turn it into a burrito bowl. Cover with avocado slices. Add to fried eggs. Use in fried (cauli)rice. It is just plumb good.
Folks, it's not for the faint of heart. It's pork that cooks until the fat is rendered... and then it fries itself in that fat. The great news is that it is very flavorful, very easy, and feeds a crowd (or two hungry people for a week). The other great news is that I am continuing to lose weight and gain endurance while eating high fat/low carb, so I'm feeling that the fattiness here is acceptable.
2 lbs pork butt/shoulder, cut into 2" chunks
1/2 c citrus juice of choice (I used lime and orange in equal parts)
time (no really, commit to 3 hours in the kitchen)
Put meat chunks in pot. Pour in citrus juice. Add water until it covers pork. Turn on the heat and simmer until the water cooks off. Continue to stir and fry in its own juices (YUM) until you get a crispy edge. Be vigilant about cooking and stirring here-- you want even crispiness, not charred bottom.
I hear you can put the ingredients in the crockpot, minus the water, and then put the chunks of meat on a cookie sheet and broil for crispiness. I will be trying this.
