Pork Carnitas

My husband shares my deep love of Mexican Food and Pork Carnitas are at the top of our list of favorites. How would we ever find another partner that would understand our affection for braised (and sometimes fried) pork?

Thanks to Taste of Home we now have the perfect recipe for Pork Carnitas to make at home. And there's a bonus - they are made in a Slow Cooker!

The chicken broth, green chiles and salsa add the perfect amount of moisture to the meat. I left out the oil, made 1/2 the recipe and cooked my roast on low for 6 hours. It was perfect! I served the carnitas with homemade tortillas, beans, rice, avocado slices, cilantro & onions.
