⚽ World Cup 2018 Game 42 – Mexico vs. Sweden

I missed #tacotuesday yesterday because I was saving the CARNITAS POTATO TACO for today’s game. Crispy Swedish hash brown potato pancakes serve as the “tortilla” for the juicy slow-cooked Mexican carnitas. The potato pancake is a delicious vehicle for the taco, where each bite tastes like you stuffed your mouth with McDonalds fries and the best carnitas taco at the same time.

Carnitas
  1. Wash and wipe dry the pork butt. Generously season the outside with salt and pepper. Combine oregano + cumin + olive oil and rub over the pork.
  2. Put pork in an Instapot and add orange juice + jalapeno + onion + garlic. Set Instapot to cook on meat for 2 hours.
  3. Remove and shred with fork. Set aside.
Potato Pancake
  1. Peel and finely grate the potatoes.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix egg + salt + black pepper + chili powder + AP flour + baking powder. Add the grated potatoes and mix well.
  3. Heat an 8 inch skillet to medium high heat. Add a TBSP of olive oil and pour in 1/4 cup of potato batter. Spread the batter out thinly and cook for 4 minutes and flip. Cook for an additional 3-4 minutes until both sides are browned. Repeat until you've used up all the potato batter.
  4. To serve, top a potato pancake with 1/2 cup of the carnitas. Top with onion + cilantro + salsa + sour cream.
