Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 600 grams meat (pork rib)
  • 600 grams meat (pork leg)
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon thyme
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 10 black peppercorns
  • 1 orange (cut into 8 pieces)
  • 1 cup milk
  • salt (as much as you like)

Directions

  1. Cut all of the meat into small strips.
  2. Place a large pot on the stove over medium heat and pour in the olive oil.
  3. Add the meat into the pot and let it cook for 8 minutes, making sure to stir the meat every few seconds.
  4. Once the meat is lightly cooked, add the onion and continue cooking the meat for another 8 minutes.
  5. Add all of the spices into the pot (oregano, thyme, bay leaf, peppercorns) and the milk, orange, and salt. Mix everything well and then cook over low–medium heat for 20 minutes, covered.
  6. Once the 20 minutes have passed, uncover the pot, turn up the heat and let the remaining liquid evaporate. During this time you may remove the orange slices, bay leaf, and onion.
  7. Once the liquid has evaporated serve the meat on a plate. You may serve over flour tortillas, alone, or with a salad.

This was so delicious! I loved this meat. The flavor of the pork was so good and the meat was very tender. I served on warm tortillas with some avocado and pico de gallo, topped with a dollop of sour cream. These just may replace taco night!
