    I made up this recipe for Pork Carnitas using leftover shredded pork. It was fast to make and tasted great - as good as any burrito restaurant.

      Being Big Green Egg owners, we are always looking for awesome recipes for shredded pork leftovers. And. This. Was. Awesome. The only thing we changed was, after letting all of the pork simmer for 20 minutes, we heated up a skillet on high with some veggie oil and fried half of the pork for 5 minutes or so (to give a portion of the meat a different texture). I definitely recommend this addition.
