Pomegranate and Chili-Glazed Pork Carnitas Recipe
In a small saucepan, combine the pomegranate juice, molasses and chipotle, season with salt and pepper and bring to a boil over high heat. Cook until reduced by half, about 15 minutes. Remove from the heat.
Preheat the oven to 425°.
In a small bowl, mix together the chili powder, coriander, 2 teaspoons salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Season the loin with the spice mix, rubbing it in so that it adheres, and let sit at room temperature for 15 minutes.
Heat the oil in a large ovenproof nonstick sauté pan or cast-iron pan over high heat. Sear the pork on all sides until a crust forms, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to the oven and cook until medium, (an internal temperature of 145), about 12 minutes.
Transfer the pork to a cutting board, tent loosely with foil and let rest for 10 minutes. Cut into 1-inch dice and toss in the pomegranate sauce.
Serve the pork in lettuce leaves topped with pickled red onions, guacamole and pomegranate seeds.
