Haha, deep fried condensed milk...I hadn't really thought much about it but the end result tastes great. Maybe we are talking about different types of carnitas though, these sur de Sinaloa style are mainly pieces of pork meat with whatever attached fat cut up into about 1 1/2 inch squares and then deep fried in a big vat, usually the bottom third of an old oil drum until golden brown, usually more meat than fat and 75% of the time pure meat. The golden color and some flavor comes from the milk though, and if you ask a local carnitas maker if he used Leche Clavel one can get at least a fair non-tourist price as he knows he's talking with another carnicero. Tricks of the trade known to tradesmen. ;-)
