Pork Carnitas

I really love crock-pot meals!
This recipe is super easy to put together, and slow cooking the meat through out the day with the cumin and fresh citrus smells so good.
The meat turns out very moist and flavorful.
Makes very yummy tacos!

Pork Carnitas
6 servings


2 - 4 pounds pork roast

1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
7 cloves garlic (whole intact)
1/2 tablespoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon cumin
1/2 cup beef broth
corn tortillas
sour cream, salsa, cheese, lettuce

How To Make:

1. In a small bowl, combine the salt and cumin. Rub mixture all over the pork, then plop into a crock-pot OR slow cooker. Add whole garlic cloves. Squeeze on the citrus, and pour the beef broth evenly over the top.

2. Cook on low for 8-10 hours, or until the pork shreds quite easily with a fork.

3. Shred meat fully and serve on warmed corn tortillas with desired toppings.
