More testing with Pepper Bee 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. I like to bake because I cut the pork in pieces and flip while baking. This will produce the brown crispy sides I remember at a punk. Carnitas has very little ingredients, in fact it’s salt and water. I did use black pepper but normally it’s not required.

➕ Nutrition - About

Hay yall! Don’t be afraid to adjust or substitute ingredients to your taste. None of these recipes came from a written measured recipe. They are made, noted, measured on the fly, then pumped up here when time permits. 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. Well, in general I can’t spell worth a crap. Thanks – Shawn
