  • Brine the cubed pork butt in a 1 gallon of water to 1 cup of kosher salt ratio for 24 hours in the fridge.
  • Take the pork out of the bag and place it in a colander. Rinse off the excess brine, dry off the pork, and season it with your dry rub.
  • Vacuum seal the seasoned pork in two packets and dunk the packets in the SousVide Supreme for 28 hours.
  • Remove the pork and blot the pork cubes dry. Heat the lard in a cast iron skillet and pan-fry the cubes. Drain them on a wire rack.
  • Serve the carnitas in lettuce tacos topped with diced white onions, cilantro, Primavera salsa, and homemade guacamole!
