Carnitas Biscuits Pepper Bee’d

More Pepper Bee test I decided to use up a can of biscuits waiting for me to use. The meat is carnitas or typically called pulled pork when you live north of the dirty south. We baked these, but you could use a slow cooker or even stovetop on low. Carnitas has minimal ingredients, in fact, it’s salt and water. I did use black pepper, but typically it’s not required.

Hay yall! Don’t be afraid to adjust or substitute ingredients to your taste. These recipes didn’t come from a written measured recipe. They are made, noted, measured on the fly, then pumped up here when time permits and most importantly only if they tasted good.

If you don’t have any Texas Butter I guess we’ll overlook it if you use what’s in your pantry. Be sure to ask how something turned out or you have questions. Expect grammar errors, these are not checked much other than what my browser flags. Well, in general I can’t spell worth a crap. Thanks – Shawn
