    Miss Annie's Note:

    I got this delicious and tasty and easy recipe from the Abilene Chuckwagon Cook-Off. Romaldo was the "cookie" from one of the large ranches in that area. I have used this recipe so often, it is one of my favorite tried and true. It re-heats well and freezes very well.

      I am from the Philippines and currently going out with a hispanic man. I don't know any hispanic recipes at all so I thought I try some recipes from the web and found this one. It was very good, delicious, tasty. I felt so proud of myself seeing his whole family were eating the carnitas. It was just a matter of minutes when they finished all 4 pound of my homemade carnitas. Thank you very much. I owe it all to you. Rhea Tenorio

      Wow!! The flavor of this roast was great!! I followed your instructions exactly. The meat just fell apart... it was so tender. I served it with the flour tortilla, guacamole & salsa. I also served up a plate of grilled onions with it. Fabulous dish. I highly recommend it! Thanks so much for sharing. :-)

      I used this recipe to serve 30 people at our family reunion. I froze the cooked meat and transported it the 7 hours to the reunion. I reheated it in a pan and it was a hit. A little was left over for lunch the next day. Everyone gobbled it down! Thanks for posting.
