Ok, so I have a problem with carnitas. I can admit it. That's the first step, right?! Evan asked if I could make some pizzas last weekend, so I thought sure! That'll give me the perfect outlet for my carnitas obsession. I made the usual for the boys and Tanette but created something new for myself.
Homemade dough with cilantro jalapeno pesto
Added caramelized onions and the carnitas
Topped with Quesadilla and Cotija cheeses and a pinch of Epazote
After baking in the Egg and yes, it was delicious!
Snoop may have sung Gin and Juice but I'm all about Beef and Juice. The messy comfort of a Chicago Beef. It all started with Chef Eric's birthday gift of a jar of giardiniera. A delicious concoction of pickled vegetables that are perfect on a Chicago Beef. Great! I said. How do you make a homemade Chicago Beef at home?! Ah, the internet. Within seconds, he sent me this link and I was off and running. And I thought, what better than some homemade fries to go with it! I've got enough for 4 more sandwiches, so stop on by for one.

After cooking. Love the color change of the juice.
