The Ultimate Carnitas Recipe Video. Coke-Braised Pork Carnitas. The Mexican Chef I learned this recipe from used a similar method. He used frozen OJ and a couple of real oranges cut in half and tossed in whole. The zest adds more flavor. The Coke acid tenderizes while the sugar and caramel coloring helped to caramelize the pork exterior. There is so much more flavor in Carnitas this way as opposed to just roasting it or cooking it in a slow cooker with just a little oil!
