My favorite way to cook little pigs is to make carnitas in a crock pot. Here's a 2.5 lb bone in ham. I use small hams or shoulders.



Season er up and cover meat with chicken broth. Cook on low for 6-8 hrs.



Do fun stuff while the crock pot works it's magic.



Whip up some fresh hot salsa verde, (love this stuff).

When it's done do you spread it on a pan then put it under the broiler for a few minutes to give that supple meat a nice little chur?

When the meat is done remove it and most of the liquid. Shred with two forks, return to pot and add chopped chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, fajita seasoning, and cumin to taste.

Make some frijoles and whip up some fresh tortillas.







Add some onion, cilantro, lime, avacado, jalapeno and you're all set.






Go kill more pigs and repeat.

Thanks for looking.

Yes Sir it's shredded pork.

No I don't do the traditional carnita crisp up on small feral pigs because it's so lean, it dries out. I keep it juicy and delicious!

Yes Sir, super simple.

Get a pot of water boiling,
To the water add a half an onion, 4-5 cloves of garlic, couple jalapenos and a couple serranos. I add at least 3 of each because I like mine hot.
After all that gets soft, add one lb of tomatillos and boil until they start to turn brown. Remove from heat, don't over cook your tomatillos you don't want them to bust.
Add all that (no water) to a blender. Add cilantro and salt to taste. Done.

Thanks ya'll, I love tacos. That green sauce is addictive once you find out how much of what you like. A little lime juice is good in there too but didn't do it this time. up

OH! and if you like grilled fish (or pan seared - I do) it's darn good. Just smear on when fish is about done.

Get you some of this. You'll never buy another lime.
