Slow Cooker Pork Carnitas
Today I wanted something different and not something I cook often and am bored with so I made my Pork Carnita's in my slow cooker! Sooo good I had to share.
I hope you enjoy this one as much as I do.
4 lbs. pork shoulder roast
2 onions chopped
1 lime juice
1 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons minced garlic
2 teaspoons chopped cilantro
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 1/4 tablespoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons dried Mexican oregano
1 teaspoon adobo *spicy option*
Put your pork roast into your slow cooker, add rest of ingredients. Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4-6 hours.
When ready remove meat from slow cooker use tongs to shred. Place on a cookie sheet and broil in oven for 4 minutes.
Put on corn tortillas with your choice of toppings and enjoy!
I like chopped onions, or pico de gallo, and a chipolte sour cream or Queso Fresco cheese
