Orange Pork Carnitas
10 mins (prep 10)
9 ingredients
4-6 servings
This is a good basic recipe for pork Carnitas in the crock pot. A good throw it in the crock pot and forget about it recipe. This recipe is without any "heat" so my 2 year old can enjoy it too. If you want the spicier version just add some of your favorite hot peppers diced up to the mix in the crock pot. I serve this on toasted corn tortillas shells with home-made guacamole, cilantro, diced green onion, cheddar cheese and green salsa Verde.
