There's no lard needed in this version of traditional Mexican carnitas. It's also sweeter and more caramelized because of the cola. Best of all? It can be made with minimal effort for a very easy weeknight dinner.

I love this recipe because it takes me back to the seaside city of Ensenada where the fish taco was born.
