A question about a recipe: Diana Kennedy's Carnitas

69db6017 5873 4574 af78 a637c224cea1  5862540794 87eeec4b0f z

I have a question about the recipe "Diana Kennedy's Carnitas" from Genius Recipes. What type of pot is best to use for this? I either have baking dishes (glass, le creuset) or stock pots but neither seems ideal. I do have large stainless steel fry pans and saute pans -- would those work?

Your stock pots can work, if it's not too big. Stainless steel fry & saute pans should work as long as they are deep enough so that the water just barely covers the meat. Basically, you are simmering the meat in water and eventually evaporating that water off and browning the meat. I agree baking dishes are not ideal, unless they were also designed for stovetop cooking.
