- 1 pound Brussels sprouts
- 2 tablespoons lard melted
- salt to taste

- 1 pound carnitas
- 3 tablespoons chicken stock or other liquid of choice

Preheat the oven to 400 F. As that warms, wash your Brussels sprouts, pat dry using paper towels or a dish towel before slicing thinly with a sharp knife (or use a slicing blade on your food processor).
On a large well-rimmed baking sheet, spread the shredded sprouts, drizzling with your melted lard and sprinkling with salt and pepper to taste. Bake 10 minutes before removing from the oven.
Add your carnitas (or other meat as desired) and cooking juices to the shredded sprouts and bake a further 10 minutes.
Let the salad sit 5 minutes before serving, topping with Sriracha if so desired.
