One of the reasons I became a chef was because I was amazed at my father's ability to prepare the perfect meal, particularly his carnitas, Traditionally, carnitas are deep fried in larda nutritionist's nightmare! Now using healthier cooking methods and healthier ingredients., my father (who now has diabetes) and I can enjoy carnitas without sacrificing the crispy outside and tender juicy inside of the pork. - Chef LaLa
