Directions

  1. Trim fat from meat. Cut meat into 1-1/2-inch cubes. In a Dutch oven cook meat, half at a time, in hot lard or oil over medium-high heat, stirring to brown evenly. Remove from Dutch oven. Add onion and garlic to Dutch oven; cook until lightly browned and tender. Return meat to Dutch oven.
  2. Add the water, orange peel, orange juice, thyme, salt, oregano, crushed red pepper, and bay leaves to Dutch oven. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 2 hours. Remove lid; increase heat so mixture boils gently. Cook, uncovered, about 30 minutes or until almost all of the liquid has evaporated, gently stirring occasionally. Discard thyme sprigs and bay leaves. Using a slotted spoon, transfer meat to a serving bowl. Serve with warmed corn tortillas and fresh salsa or guacamole. If desired, garnish with Mexican crema or sour cream.

From the Test Kitchen

*Tip:

To warm the tortillas, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Wrap tortillas in foil and bake about 15 minutes or until heated through.
