    Carnitas fajita question

    Hey there. I'm making the crispy carnitas from this post:
    Crispy Carnitas | Mark's Daily Apple

    I've made it before and it's not too bad but, I want to include red peppers to make them fajitas. Would I need to include them in the pot immediately? I don't want to change the taste. Or can I put them in after I shred the pork?

    Thanks.

    I would caramelize them with some sliced onions in a separate pan. They will get meltingly sweet. It's nice to have layered flavors like that rather than everything in one pot..IMHO.

    If you don't want to change the taste, why not just saute them in a skillet and add them as a topping when you put the fajitas together? If you add them to the pot, yeah, it's going to change the taste. But if you do add them, just basically think what consistency you want. You see what happens to the onions - they cook down to almost nothing. If you want the peppers to do that too, add them in the beginning. If you just want them to cook through but maintain their size and consistency, add them after you shred. I don't see how you could lose either way, any experiment is bound to be pretty damn delicious

    Lol..I was just about to say "pinch poke, you owe me a Mexican coke" but you beat me to it.

    Same disclaimer as above. Double dutch on the mattress tag.
