This recipe was EASY and the most delicious pork carnitas I've ever tasted! I started by browning the pork on the stove, as recommended, but then instead of simmering on the stove we popped it in the crock pot for 4 hours on high. I didn't have Chipotle chili powder, so I just used a little extra regular chili powder. I also couldn't find pork shoulder so we used pork tenderloin instead (it was on sale!). I used our small food processor to make the tomatillo sauce and it worked really well. We will definitely make this recipe again soon!
Made this for New Years Eve dinner it was a BIG hit!!!
