I love most dishes I can cook in my wonderful slow cooker. One of my new favorite dishes is pork carnitas. This is a quick flavorful dish that works with tacos, nachos, or any other Mexican inspired dish. 


  • 3lbs pork shoulder 
  • 1 cup of chicken broth 
  • 1/4 cup salsa 
  • 1 Red Onion (Chopped)
  • 2 Tbsp Garlic
  •  Paprika 
  • Chili Powder 
  • Salt & Pepper to taste 
  • 1 Orange ( juice only)
  • Half Lime (Juice only)



  1. Rub seasoning on the pork shoulder before placing the meat in the crock pot with the fat up. 
  2. Pour the broth and salsa over the meat and cook the meat on high for about 3 hours 
  3. Once the meat is cooked, remove the pork from the crock pot and place on a plate to rest for 10-15 minutes 
  4. Shred the meat and cook it on a pan at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10-15 minutes or until the meat has a browned color 
  5. Plate the meat and enjoy!
