This recipe rocks my world! There is a certain restaurant around who serves up burritos with pork carnitas, or you can get a burrito bowl if you are gluten free, like me (make sure they change gloves and wash their hands, though). And while super tasty, the cross contamination risk worries me. Our milage has varied on whether we will get sick or not, so I wanted a different solution to a tasty meal.
Enter my favorite appliance to save the day! Simply pop a pork roast in the slow cooker with some spices and tastiness, cover and let cook on low. When tender, shred the pork with two forks and you have yourself something to rave about. Tender, juicy carnitas, made at home. Excuse me… I need to go get a bigger bowl!
