Rick Makes Double-Pork Carnitas and Corn Tortillas | From the Test Kitchen | Bon Appétit

  • Published: 12 November 2018
  • Rick Martinez is back in the Test Kitchen to make double-pork carnitas with corn tortillas and green pico de gallo. That's right, these carnitas use two kinds of pork (shoulder and belly) because one is definitely not enough.

          Missing a lot of manteca, that's what gives carnitas it's flavor.

                    Mexican oregano is so easy to grow. You can literally just keep it in a vase on your counter by a window all winter and change the water weekly forever.

                      Great recipe but the chef in me is worried about working in a kitchen with nail polish on and no gloves.

                        Putting some pieces of an orange also helps the flavor it’s delicious

                                              OMG, here we go again with aberrations in Mexican Cooking! This is NOT how you make carnitas (chicken stock hahahahaha) never! Carnitas are made in LARD and we use every part of the pork. It's more Confit that what this is and confit means "cooked in it's own fat". I am supremely disillusioned in Bon Apetit for having such a poor representation of what is one of the world's great cuisines and I am only speaking for Mexican food and not the others that he presents. Shame, I've only watched 1 or 2 of the other chefs and they seem ok but there are so many flaws with Rick's cooking and his BS I find it insulting. Doesn't even know how to make tortillas! And his chilaquiiles are not traditional and that sauce! I can see adaptations for the home cook but there are better ways of doing this, believe me, that would be closer to true recipes. Or just say "this is my take on what I think is..." Very disrespectful. In case you're saying "what does she know?" I am an experienced, classicaly trained, award winning Mexican Chef with over 40 years experience, teaching and in my own restaurants in Mexico and the USA. I currently live in CDMX and have lived all over the world and most of Mexico. Just saying...

                                                          The tortilla press that Rick is using was made by a company called Central Coast Woodworks. You can find these presses for sale on Amazon by searching using the company name. I purchased one of them and it works great. The company is owned by a man named Jason and he’s a super nice guy. If you need a tortilla press, I suggest that you consider this one. You will love it.

His birthday was on the 4th and it is the 12th now but nobody would be able to come if we had the party on the 4th because most people spend the 4th with their families because they have barbeques and whatnot. Personally, I'm feeling a little down on America, but if you want to celebrate, Go for it. Anyway, Rick, looking forward to tonight. Going to make some delish food. I will let you know how the party goes and how the dish is received. Best, Max Addendum, We are actually going to make the pico at 7, because guests will be coming over at 8 and I don't want it to get soggy. So yeah, the fresher - the better!
