Mexican for “little meats,” this dish is simply small bits or shreds of well browned veal. It’s made from an inexpensive cut of veal that’s simmered in a small amount of water until tender, then finished by cooking the pieces in fat until nicely browned all over. Carnitas are usually eaten with salsa and are sometimes used as the filling in tacos and burritos.
