Crock Pot Pork Carnitas


Crock Pot Pork Carnitas

This one is super easy and such a great use of your crock pot!


2-4 pounds pork shoulder (bone or no bone)
1 onion
4 cloves garlic
1 Tb lime juice
1 Tb lemon juice
1 Tb olive oil
2 tsps oregano
1 tsp cumin
Salt and pepper


Rinse and dry pork. Salt and pepper liberally. Mix olive oil with oregano and cumin and use it as a rub. Cover the pork with it and place into crock pot. Cover with chopped onion and garlic. Add lemon and lime juice. Cook on high setting for 4 hours, then reduce to low for a couple hours if in a hurry, or just leave it on low for 8-10 hours. When done it will fall apart effortlessly.

(No you don’t need to add any other liquid to this)
