Prep Time: 60 min.

For best results, thaw Sous Vide Pork in cooler (less than 40°F) for 48 - 72 hours.


From thawed state (oven method)

  1. Remove content of the bag (meat and juices) and place in a SS pan insert. Evenly break up the Sous Vide Pork to ensure proper mixing. Using gloved hands shred the pork into smaller pieces.
  2. Add garlic, orange juice, cumin, oregano, salt, pepper and sliced onions with the pork and mix well. Cover and place in a 350°F oven.
  3. Cook for approximately 30 - 45 minutes to an internal temperature of 165°F for 15 seconds (HACCP).
  4. Remove from oven and finish pork carnitas meat by adding lime juice to shredded pork and place in a holding cabinet covered until service. (Hold at 145°F or higher – HACCP)
