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.
