CARNITAS

2 - 3 lbs pork, cut into cubes
2 - 3 tsp Adobo Seasoning
1 - 2 tsp chopped garlic
Salt
Water
Lard or bacon drippings if meat is real lean

Put cubed pork in large pan and just cover with water. Add salt.
Bring to a boil. If using real lean meat add lard or bacon dripping.
The idea is to cook the meat long enough to make it tender and when
all the water is gone there will be the grease left that will brown
the meat.

Cook on medium high heat for about an hour, keeping a good eye on
it at all times. If the water cooks out too fast, you'll have
tough meat, if too slow it will over cook the meat and it will fall
apart.

Serve on flour tortillas with any desired topping.
