Slow Cooker Pork Carnitas Recipe
We love making Pork Carnitas in the slow cooker. A fun twist on traditional carnitas that cooks all day long. This Pork carnitas recipe is perfect for tacos, burritos, enchiladas, or on top of salads.
Non-stick Cooking Spray
Large Baking Sheet
- 3 pound pork roast
- 15 ounces enchilada sauce 1 can
- 1 cup salsa
- 1 onion chopped
- 1 Tablespoon garlic
- 2 Tablespoons lime juice
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 1 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
Place roast in slow cooker sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
Combine remaining ingredients in a bowl and pour over the roast.
Cook on LOW for 8-10 hours or HIGH for 5-6 hours (I would recommend the low setting). Remove roast from slow cooker when finished cooking and shred using two forks (it should fall apart pretty easily).
Cover a large baking sheet (15x10x1") with foil and spread the shredded meat on top of it. Pour some of the liquid from the slow cooker over the meat (I used about 1 1/2 cups - use as much or as little as you like).
Broil meat for about 5 minutes, until it starts to caramelize around the edges (I flipped my meat once during this time).
