Espresso Nice Pork Carnitas

It’s Taco night! Which means slowly braising some delicious meats until they fall apart and melt in your mouth, and then crisp up under a hot broiler! Pork plus espresso flavours?

Oh he is so smart. This was very easy, and came out amazing! Try his technique with these flavours.
