Carnitas (Slow Cooker)

Ingredients

  • 4 pounds (or 2 kg) pork butt (or shoulder)
  • 3-4 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano (or Mexican oregano)
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 large brown or white onion, cut into wedges
  • 8 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 2 large oranges, juiced (or 34 cup natural orange juice)
  • 34 cup Original coke (Mexican coke is ideal)
  • 2 bay leaves

Steps

Combine everything and cook on low for 8-10 hours. Don’t discard liquid!

Place on baking sheet, cover with 1 cup of liquid and broil. Watch closely!

The recipe recommended broiling for 15 minutes but we only broiled for 5, any longer and ours would have burned. Enjoy guys!
