FAQs

We get lots of questions on how to use our products and on how to make our recipes. Please see here for our most frequently asked questions. Feel free to leave a question in the comments section of the recipe page. If you would like to learn more about Mexican cooking check out the Gran Luchito Youtube Channel.

What is the difference between pulled pork and carnitas?

Both carnitas and pulled pork are slow-cooked for hours. However, carnitas are finished off by being roasted in the oven until crispy and brown.

Is pork belly unhealthy?

So long as you choose pastured pork where pigs are fed a natural diet and allowed to roam and root, then their pork belly is very healthy, rich in vitamins and minerals. The fat is also 50% monounsaturated (good fats), and the rest is saturated and polyunsaturated, which is actually also healthy. It's just that we consume far too much of those fats! So pork belly is very healthy, but just don't eat it all the time.

What goes with pulled pork tacos?

With our pulled pork tacos recipe, we serve it with a quick red cabbage slaw. Other ideas are our Mexican Black Beans and Mexican coleslaw recipes, along with Gran Luchito Soft Taco Wraps and Chipotle Mayo.

What Mexican dishes can you make with pork?

You can make all sorts of burritos, tacos, quesadillas, fajitas, nachos or enchiladas. You can make pork pibil, pork in salsa verde, pulled pork, or sticky pork belly, and these are all then filled into classic Mexican vessels like soft flour tortillas.

What makes pork Mexican?

Pork is made Mexican in the way it's cooked and presented. Traditional herbs and spices are used, red peppers, tomatoes, onion, quite often chillies, a bit of smoky heat. It's then roasted, fried or slow cooked and typically presented with rice, or in soft flour or hard corn tortillas.
