"This is one of the rare recipes that I make over and over again. It's really that good." – kellybeth
"Carnitas means 'little meats' and is traditionally fried, then braised. This recipe is made much easier using the slow cooker but the results are just as tasty." – Erin Parker
"This is SO easy to make! My picky kids love it so much they have seconds and thirds!" – Amazonajt
Recipe of the Day
This was my husband's favorite breakfast growing up in a Mexican household. Now we make it all times of day and even our kids always ask for seconds. Very simple, inexpensive, and quick to make. I sometimes add hot pepper sauce, or ingredients you would like in a omelet, but my husband prefers it the traditional way.
