Romaldo's Carnitas

Romaldo's Carnitas created by Ivansocal

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.

    such a great recipe. the meat came out so tender!! I might do a little less cumin next time as it can be a strong flavor but my family loved it!

    Thanks Annie for a lovely meal. We changed two things, one as a result of my reflux - due to that we only used one tablespoon of chilli powder. The second thing is, we live in Australia, so don't actually know what cans of green chillies are. So in that case we substituted a drained jar of chopped jalapenos. Served with flour tortillas, salsa, guacamole and sour cream - yum! Sorry, no photo - all eaten!
