Carne Adovada Plate
Homemade Carne Adovada in Albuquerque
Billy the Kid. La Llorona. A UFO crash at Roswell. Cocina Azul’s homemade carne adovada.
What do all of these have in common?
All of them are New Mexico legends.
Carne Adovada is pork cushion—lean and flavorful pork shoulder—marinated in red chile sauce and served with garlic and other spices.
Cocina Azul’s homemade carne adovada is brined in small batches for twenty-four hours, marinated in special spices and soaked for forty-eight hours in Frank Sr.’s famous red chile sauce.
It’s delicious at lunch.
It’s delicious at dinner.
And it comes served with two of your choice of:
- whole beans, hearty and substantial;
- buttery white rice, savory and light;
- fideos, Spanish noodles, so good; and
- calabacitas, an unforgettable mix of squash, zucchini, corn, onion and other deliciousness.
You can also smother it all in your choice of red or green chile sauce and sop up any remaining sauces with a delicious sopapilla.
