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!
EASY CROCKPOT CARNITAS: 4-5 lbs. pork shoulder 5 cloves garlic 1 tablespoon salt 1 teaspoon cumin 1 teaspoon chili powder 1 teaspoon black pepper 1 teaspoon oregano ¼ teaspoon cinnamon ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper 1 tablespoon chipotle hot sauce (optional) juice of 2 limes ½ cup orange juice 12 ounces beer ½ cup salsa (I like to use a less chunky one)
4 sweet potatoes 2 oz of low fat cream cheese 1 can of black beans 1 can of corn 1/4 cup pepper jack shredded cheese jalapeno slices crushed red chili pepper flakes and whatever other seasoning you want makes 4 servings...315 calories my new favorite dinner!
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!
