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!

You have to be signed in to Taste of Home to see this recipe, but it's free to join.

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.

    This looks delicious! I haven't yet tried a slow cooker, but I have been thinking about getting one, and this is certainly tipping me over the edge decision wise!
