Crockpot Carnitas


This is an easy crockpot recipe for carnitas to make some yummy tacos. We always have enough leftover for nachos or quesadillas the next day. 

Crockpot Carnitas

1 5lb Pork shoulder, you can also use pork butt 
5 Cloves of garlic, minced
2 Limes, juiced
1/2 cup of Orange juice
12 oz. can of Beer, whatever you have on hand
1 tbs. Salt
1 tsp. Pepper
1 tsp. Cumin
1 tsp. Chili powder
1 tsp. Oregano

Season the pork with the dry seasonings. Place in crockpot. Add the garlic, juices and beer. Cook on low for 8 hours. When ready, shred meat and then dry with some lard in a pan till the meat becomes a little crispy. Serve with tortillas, preferably corn if you have them, and homemade guacamole
