Slow Cooker Carnitas
Warning – this is my recipe. Meaning, NOT authentic carnitas which traditionally use lard to fry ‘em up – which is surely tasty, but I just couldn’t bring myself to do it!
3-4 lbs pork shoulder
1/2 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon black pepper
pinch of salt
4 tablespoons minced garlic
Put the pork shoulder in your slow cooker.
Mix together the orange juice, lime juice, olive oil, pepper, salt and garlic and pour over the pork.
Set the cooker to low for 8-10 hours.
Take the pork out of the crock pot and chop into small pieces. Serve with corn tortillas, pico de gallo, fresh guac, whatever you like!
