Day 12

No cooking for a few days.  We just ate leftovers and tried to empty out the fridge.  Nothing really special worth writing about.  

We had some frozen pork roasts and decided to cook them in the sous vide and make carnitas.  

If you don't have a sous vide, you can slow cook it on the oven or a crock pot.  It is super delicious and your family will love it.  

After slow cooking the pork, make the sauce:

1 large can mild enchilada sauce mix 
1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano 
1 tsp granulated garlic
Dash of cayenne powder
1 small onion diced fine
1 tbsp olive oil

Sauté onions in oil in a pot until translucent.  Add rest of ingredients.  Break pork roast apart into pieces of desired size.  We like it about an inch or so for easy taco filling.  Add pork to pot and cook on medium until pork is warm.  Serve with refried beans, tortillas and pico de Gallo sauce.  

Pico de gallo
Mix all ingredients together: 

1 onion chopped (1 cup)
1 cup chopped tomatoes
1 cup chopped cilantro 
1 garlic clove pressed
Juice of 1/2 lime
