  1. Howdy Chef John!! I've made this recipe several times now and I get tears in my eyes each time because it's so good.
    My question is, can beef be substituted in the recipe? If no, or yes but……, can you please inform. Thanks.
    I dig what you do Sir. All the best and continued success.

  2. Well, John, I prepared you Carnitas recipe and it was awesome. drk321, you do not know what you are talking about. My wife is Mexican and we have visited her childhood home in Mexico City many times. What I discovered is that while Mexican food recipes have commonality in their preparation, every Mexican cook (chief), has their own unique way of making, say, carnitas or enchiladas or tamales, etc.. I point this out because your condemnation of John's carnitas recipe is unwarranted and petty.

  3. John, I have enjoyed your recipes. Thank you. The problem I have is your voice cadence. Your habit of holding the vowel sound at the end of your sentences is very annoyiiiiing.

  4. Since moving to Florida from Southern California, I start shaking when I see something like this. I may be going through withdrawals in this Mexican culinary wasteland.

  5. First visit to your channel. The music track started way too late… that's a good recipe and it's the first time I've heard a recipe 'sung'! You have a very unique intonation… it needs music! Go on, start the cool piano track as soon as you begin 'speaking'.
    Cheers, Chef

  6. Fantastic recipe. It came out sooooo good. Was pretty easy too. Didn't have all the spices Chef John used but had most of them. The orange peel and juice worked out really well. So maybe it isn't strictly traditional… but it sure is good.

  8. As a mexican I gotta say this recipe is close, but no cigar. If you want to taste the real thing you must come and try it here in México. Nice approach and recipe, though.

  9. I usually just season the pork butt and wrap it in foil and cook in oven. But I'm trying it this way this time. Never used orange or cinnamon before..something different. I hope it turns out as good as yours looks :/

  10. Amazingly delicious. I put a bunch of bacon grease on top and braised it. Melted in my mouth, thanks! You have no idea how great you make me look at dinner parties!
