Oh. My. Goodness. This slow cooker pork carnitas recipe is AMAZING! Juicy, packed with flavor, and so easy to put together! So there are only 9 ingredients, and you throw it all in the slow cooker. Piece of cake, right?
You can serve these either as a rice bowl or in tortillas. For these, corn tortillas work best. Fry them in some hot oil first to get the tortillas cooked and a little crunchy, but not to the point where they will break with you fold them.
Oh, and one more thing – save leftovers. I don’t know why, but the next day, these taste even better! I just ate some for lunch. Dee-lish!!

Can you cook on high if you need it to be done faster? Can’t wait to try this!
If you cook faster it will dry it out. I would recommend you cook the way it is listed or use an Instant Pot if you want to get it done faster.
Could you pre-make then meat and freeze it for later use?
How much pork? The recipe doesn’t specify.
