1/1 Photo of Pan Fried Pork Chicharrones (Central American Style)
Learned this recipe from my uncle who is the king of Q' and chicharrones! Very simple and can easily be turned into a wonderful easy meal. Just add salsa, onions and warm tortillas and you got your self some taquitos de chicharrones. Also makes a great breakfast taco. When choosing the meat, make sure to buy pork meat that has nearly the same meat to fat ratio (50/50). It will usually come cubed or cut up and ready for chicharrones (or it can sometimes be labeled as meat for carnitas). The difference is that carnitas take hours to bake and they are usually shredded afterwards and chicharrones have a higher fat content, take about 30 mins to fry and are not shredded. Be very careful when frying as chicharrones tend to splatter (a splatter screen comes in handy now). Avoid using a fork to handle pork during cooking process as piercing it causes juices (what makes meat tender) to leak out. Use tongs instead.
