    Mexican Slow Cooker Pork Carnitas - shredded pork in the crock pot for use in any Mexican dishes

  • Danielle

    crock pot carnitas recipe from Skinny Taste... So EASY and YUMMY! I will definitely make this again.

    Mexican Slow Cooked Pork Carnitas I know a lot of you share my love for Mexican food, so I think you will agree this is the most amazing pork recipe for the crock pot. Coming home from work and smelling this when you walk in the door is heavenly. Browning the pork first is essential so don't skip this step. Pork shoulder is very inexpensive and you can make a few meals out of this. Be sure to buy the boneless pork shoulder blade roast, as it is leaner than the pork shoulder picnic. The prep for this is about 15 minutes the night before. Get it ready and refrigerate it so you simply take it out and plug it in when you get up. Serve this with tortillas, use in burritos, or simply have this with cilantro lime rice. You can make your own Chipotles burrito bowl with lettuce, sour cream, corn salsa, guacamole, or whatever else you usually put in yours! Slow Cooked Pork Carnitas (Mexican Pulled Pork) Gina's Weight Watcher Recipes Servings: 8 • Serving Size: 4 oz (1/2 cup) • Old Points: 4 pts • Points+: 4 pts Calories: 176 • Fat: 7.7g • Protein: 25.8 g • Carb: 1.3 g • Fiber: 0.1 g Ingredients: 2.5 lb pork shoulder blade roast, lean, all fat removed (I used Smithfield) 6 cloves garlic, cut into sliver cumin dry adobo seasoning (I used Goya) garlic powder 3/4 cup 99% fat free chicken broth 2-3 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (to taste) 2 bay leaves Directions: Season pork with salt and pepper. In a medium sauté pan on medium-high heat, brown pork on all sides for about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Using a sharp knife, insert blade into pork, cutting small holes and insert garlic slivers. Season pork generously with cumin, adobo and garlic powder all over. Pour chicken broth in the crockpot, add bay leaves and chipotle peppers. Place pork in crock pot and cover. Cook low for 8 hours. After 8 hours, shred pork using two forks and combine well with the juices that accumalated at the bottom. Remove bay leaves and adjust salt and cumin (you will probably need to add more). Let it cook another 15-30 minutes.

5-Star*****Carnitas..this smells unbelievable in the CROCKPOT. It is So delicious..read directions carefully-uses a 4-5lb. pork shoulder or butt, but once you shred it and remove most of the fat, it's enough for a meal with leftovers, even better the next day! My daughter asks for this...and brings friends!

Crockpot Beef Carnitas Tacos - flank steak gets a spicy rubdown before sitting in a crockpot for eight hours with onion, bell pepper and jalapeno. After 8 hours the meat just falls apart ready for a yummy taco.

I make this with a pork roast. It is the BEST! Beyond easy and the broth from cooking down the roast was too devine to toss. I took the juices, skimmed off some of the fat added a little salt, northern beans, water and the cilantro lime rice leftover from our carnitas soft tacos to make the best soup for lunch the next day. CRAZY GOOD!
