This is the kind of recipe that just happens. I had made one of our favorite dinners, braised pork shoulder roast with all the usual trimmings, gravy, mashed potatoes, green beans, applesauce (I always have applesauce with pork) , it’s one of the favorite dinners at this house. This time I had extra pork, it was falling apart tender and I needed to do something with it. I was also in the mood for Mexican and thought about the many recipes for pork carnitas I’d seen. With my pork already cooked, I was already half way there. I just needed to get the pork seasoned right and also decided to use the seasoned meat for burritos.
