Slow Cooker Carnitas
This is my new go-to recipe when friends and family. They now request it my name! The aroma wafting through the house while it is cooking makes everyone hungry. Even our picky eaters love it. I make a batch of the seasonings (enough for big roasts) at a time, so it is always handy. The only change I made to the proportion of the spices is to the salt. I try not to eat too much salt, so I cut the salt by 25% from what is called for in the recipe. I use a low sodium chicken broth in the slower cooker when cooking the meat, and like some of you, I double up on the spices. The meat is so flavorful that we don't miss the salt at all.
Sometimes, I serve it as a pork taco, and other times, I add some of the spice mix in my favorite BBQ sauce and mix it into the pulled meat and serve it like a BBQ sandwich. Either way, it is wonderful. It's so easy, but so good!
