Description

My personal take on a Mexican dish. This starts with a slow roasted bone in pork shoulder and ends in a cast iron skillet. These can be finished in batches to make the flavor profile easier to control. When finished they can be served with rice and beans, in tortilla wraps, or on a bed of lettuce with salsa, guacamole, and a cilantro garnish as a salad.
