There’s nothing I love more than an easy meal. And this Slow Cooker Carnitas is perfectly suited to that! This meal is simple to make and definitely flavorful. The slow cooker makes the meat super tender and juicy and a quick trip to the broiler for a few minutes gives those delightful crispy pieces.
This meal takes only a few minutes to prep. We start with a blend of spices where the star is the chipotle powder pepper. Which I looove! The chipotle powder gives wonderful flavor with the perfect amount of heat. Rub down the pork shoulder roast with the spices, add it to the crock pot. Top with some fresh squeezed orange juice, sliced onion, minced garlic, and jalapeno.
The meat will just fall apart after the time in the slow cooker. It shreds so easily. Sticking it under the broiler for a few minutes will give those crispy pieces. Which is a step you can definitely skip if you wish…but why would you wish that??
I hope you enjoy the recipe and will follow along on my cooking adventures:
