That would be from a different region of Mexico, my recipe is traditional from Michoacan area. I have also heard of adding milk some how. Think of it this way, where did Bbq start? How has it changed from it original form? Well carnitas started in Michoacan and this (or the first thread) is its original form. That is why you travel all over Mexico and see restaurants that advertise carnitas de Michoacan.
