"Carnitas" Sous Vide Pork Picnic 180° first 3 - 4 hours dropped to 143° next 20 hours bumped up to 155 next 24 hours. I originally planned on doing this recipe in a crock pot at 24 hours on low. Mixing in my pork rub. a pan is lined with plastic wrap and sprayed with cooking spray. Pork is dumped in to pan Top is covered with plastic wrap and another pan is sprayed on the bottom with cooking spray and placed on top of the plastic wrap. The pork is placed in the refrigerator weighted with bricks to rest overnight. Removed Plastic Flipped Comes out nicely. Squaring up the loaf. Cut and floured Deep Frying Topped with my version of Taco Bell Hot Sauce. Taco Bell Hot Sauce (success but can be tweaked a bit) 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 16 oz, Franks red hot 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste 1 cup water 1 heaping teaspoon chili powder 1 teaspoon cumin 1/2 teaspoon paprika 1 tablespoon minced dried onion 2 tablespoons canned finely chopped jalapeno slices Place in sauce pan and stir well, simmer at a very low temperature for 15 - 20 minutes. Remove and cool. Looks Good, Don't It?. Looks are deceiving my friend, this whole 8 pound batch went directly in the trash. Something happened during the cook that made it inedible, I am going to repeat the recipe in a crock pot in a few weeks.
