Publishers Weekly: Pati’s Mexican Table, The Secrets of Real Mexican Home Cooking

    Hi Pati,

    I just watched your show for the first time. I love it! I made the mexican rice and the tomatillo chicken , what a hit.
    I thougt you made a dish using leeks but cannot find it . Could you help? It was on pbs in GA Feb2.
    You talk as if I’m in the kitchen with you.

    Thank you for all of your efforts,

  • Joyce McLean

    I’ve been watching your show and love it! Not long ago I saw an episode where you prepared carnitas using pork tenderloin. I’ve always loved this dish, but most of the recipes I’ve found take a very long time to prepare. I’d love to have your recipe for this dish.

      Oh! Terry, that is Cajeta, is the Mexican version of Dulce de Leche. You can use either of those. Look in your Latino store or international store or the Latin or international aisle of your regular grocery store. Last resort: order online!
