Carne Adovada and Eggs
February 24, 2011 § Leave a comment
Carne adovada is a New Mexican dish consisting of pork that has been cooked until very tender in a mixture of spices. I got this at Anita’s New Mexican Restaurant in Vienna, VA, when I met a couple colleagues for a breakfast meeting. It was early in the day, so the adovada had not had long to cook, and as a consequence it was not particularly tender or soaked through with the spices. It was good, though, and I definitely got the sense of what the real thing must taste like.
My recommendation: Wait until at least midday before ordering the adovada. this stuff has to stew a while to really get the flavor right, from what I can tell.
