I love slow cooking meat because there is so little work to do. Just put the cut in with all the spices and vegetables and let heat and time work their magic. This carnitas recipe is the perfect cozy meal to have at home with your family, and it's also wonderful to make ahead of time to feed a crowd. Making your own tortillas is a game changer. Just a handful of simple ingredients make the softest, freshest tortillas. Once you’ve had freshly made flour tortilla, there is no going back!
TIP: The tortillas should be cooked as close to serving time as possible so they are fresh and soft.
Letting the balls of dough rest is key to making good, thin tortillas. Resting will make them easier to roll out because the gluten has time to relax in the dough.
Do not over-flour your surface when you roll out the tortillas. If there is excess flour on the tortillas it will char in the pan.
