Carnitas (lil’ meats!)

Food Wishes and Damn Delicious

I’m marrying two recipes for this. I used a slow cooker (DD) but all ingredients, brazing technique, etc. was taken from FW. I also added the lime from DD, along with some dried chipotle peppers. It was good. Goooooooood.

All Day – slow cooked on high 5 hrs. I broiled for 10 minutes, but 8 may have been better…

Edit – I also took chunking the meat from the FW video. I didn’t braise the butt whole. I really think this helped with both cooking and finishing this dish.

Turkey Bolognese – Theory

Delish

Look – I think we can agree that carrots and celery don’t belong in pasta sauce. But I subbed in some bell peppers and jalapeƱos… switched out dried herbs for fresh oregano, basil, and thyme… Added some red pepper flakes, more salt… Ok, I really fucked with this recipe, BUT I followed the general phasing and theory. Worked good. Flavors.

Could be 60 mins, could be all day. Depends on how much you want to simmer. More simmer, more flavor.
