I made this over the weekend, tripling the spices like many had recommended (even the cinnamon and corriander), let meat marinate over night and then cook for about 6 hours in the crock pot. I cut up the carnitas and stored them in an air tight container with all of the juices.
I typically cook for the entire week on the weekend, so the carnitas were to be eaten as pork tacos and BBQ sandwiches throughout the week. To serve up carnitas tacos last night I followed some reviewers suggestions and put two servings of the meat in the oven for 15 minutes on 400 to make the meat "crispy." I do not recommend doing this as it only dries out the meat. This afternoon I reheated some of the meat in the microwave and it was very tender.
This recipe was very easy and simple to use. The spices are flavorful, but not overwhelming. The meat can be used in many different types of dishes. I will be making this again.
