SLOW COOKER PORK CARNITAS
Carnitas is basically Mexican pulled pork. It’s used in tacos, burritos, tamales, or on tostadas. Or of course, you can add it to a salad, or just eat it by itself also.
WHAT IS CARNITAS?
Prepare Dry rub
In a small bowl combine the cumin, chipotle powder, salt, oregano, and black pepper, stir to combine.
Cut the pork roast into 2-3 inch chunks. Rub down with the seasoning. Add to slow cooker with onion, garlic, jalapenos & orange juice.
Cook on LOW heat for 6-8 hours. Remove the roast from the slow cooker and shred. Save the juices from cooking the meat - these will help with crisping the meat.
Preheat the broiler in the oven for 5 minutes. Spread the shredded meat onto a large baking sheet. Drizzle with the leftover juices & broil for 2-3 minutes until some bits begin to caramelize.
