Francisco Gómez is back on his quest to discover everything there is to know about tacos in Mexico. On this episode, he's exploring Quiroga in Michoacán, the carnitas capital of the world. Braising carnitas (literally, "little meats") is the juicy, tasty way to prepare pork by slow-cooking it in its own fat.
The final result is pink on the inside and perfectly caramelized on the outside. Gómez visits the Ayala family who have been cooking and selling carnitas tacos in Quiroga for five generations. Also, watch to the end to find out about charanda, a rum-like spirit that pairs with carnitas perfectly.
