Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Trim excess fat from the meat and discard.
  2. Place the meat in a large Crock pot/slow cooker.
  3. Combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl and pour over the meat.
  4. Cover Crock pot and program to cook on LOW for 8 hours.
  5. Meat is done when it literally falls off the bone.
  6. When cool enough to handle, lift the meat from the juices and place in a large bowl. Remove the bone, then shred the meat. (I used boneless pork butt.).
  7. Skim the fat from the juices and keep as a medium for re-heating the meat. Or, use the leftover juices as a soup base.
  8. For carnitas tacos: (if necessary reheat) the meat and serve in corn tortillas with all your favorite taco trimmings: fresh cilantro, guacamole, cotija, diced white onion, lime wedges, etc.
