Time to go a little South of the border.  Or at least a great excuse to make up a big batch of Margaritas!  These caritas are easy and full of flavor.  I just love the time-saving factor of using the crock pot.  Meats always come out so tender and full of flavor.  The set it and forget it factor is huge for me.  I bet you will love it too.  Cheers!

Crock Pot Pork Carnitas

Crock Pot Pork Carnitas

Crock Pot Pork Carnitas


  • 3-4 lbs pork roast

  • 1/2 cup chopped onion

  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 tsp cumin

  • 2 tsp dried cilantro

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1 tsp oregano

  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

  • 1/2 tsp paprika

  • 2-4 bay leaves

  • 2 cups chicken or vegetable broth


  1. Place the roast in the slow cooker; pour the broth over  it.

  2. Add onions and garlic.

  3. Mix seasonings together then sprinkle them over the roast, rubbing them in if desired.

  4. Cook on high 4-6 hours.

  5. When roast is cooked through, use two forks or a knife to break apart into smaller chunks. Continue cooking in the broth until tender enough to shred easily with two forks (about 6 hours, depending on the size of your roast, and how hot your slow cooker gets).

  6. Drain and serve in tortillas or over rice.

Makes about 4 to 6 servings.
