How to Make My Party Pork Roasted Carnitas

Step-by-Step

  1. preheat oven to 350 Degrees
  2. Sprinkle Roast with rice vinegar all over. then rub with the dry rub mixture all over so it is completely cover. (Depending how big a roast you make, you might have to adjust the dry rub mixture, making a little more.) Put Roast in a deep baking pan and cover with foil bake at 350 degrees for 2-1/2-3 hours depending on how big Roast is.
  3. Uncover Roast, remove most of the fat dripping don't remove it all. Reserve about 1-cup of dripping.(very important!) Shred Roast with two forks and spread out in baking pan. Return to oven and bake about 1/2 hour to 45min until meat is crispy and tender (If your Roast gets to dry while roasting add the 1 cup dripping you reserved for later.) and bake for another 5 min. so everything can incorporate. Remove from Oven and your Meat is Ready.
  4. While your Meat is cooking, You can chop, slice, shred all your fixing.

    You can warm your tortilla's right before you serve them and keep them warm in a tortilla warmer.
  5. I set everything Buffet style so everyone can fix their Tacos to their liking. I also put a big dish of Rice and Beans to go along with the Tacos.
    A Margarita or big tall glass of Beer goes great with these Tacos. Enjoy!
