I love experimenting with spices. I came up with a way to make Carnitas on the grill. Instead of heating up the kitchen, throw all your seasoning on the meat and marinade overnight or all day.... cook in a foil packet on the grill.... Family favorite.... ;) Three ways to cook this dish.... so it can be enjoyed year round. My favorite is slow cooking then grilling for 5 minutes.. gives a nice tender texture and crisp chared outside with great flavor! Sometimes I will add a cup of water to the crockpot making the meat very tender and can be shredded for burritos. This is my Burrito Filling Recipe. So anyway you cook it.... they come out GREAT!
