SLOW COOKER CARNITAS



Slow Cooker Carnitas image

Carnitas means 'little meats' and is traditionally fried then braised. This recipe is made much easier using the slow cooker but the results are just as tasty. This makes a great filling for tamales, enchiladas, tacos and burritos. This filling is also great combined with your favorite barbecue sauce and served on buns.

Time 10h10m

Yield 10

Number Of Ingredients 9

1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
½ teaspoon crumbled dried oregano
½ teaspoon ground coriander
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 (4 pound) boneless pork shoulder roast
2 bay leaves
2 cups chicken broth

Steps:

  • Mix together salt, garlic powder, cumin, oregano, coriander, and cinnamon in a bowl. Coat pork with the spice mixture. Place the bay leaves in the bottom of a slow cooker and place the pork on top. Pour the chicken broth around the sides of the pork, being careful not to rinse off the spice mixture.

Time 6h15m

Yield 8 meat-filled tortillas, 4 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 13

2 lbs pork loin (Boston butt and shoulder work great. Leaner meats seem to dry out.)
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cinnamon stick
5 -6 garlic cloves, peeled with the tips chopped off
3 -4 bay leaves, broken
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 teaspoons cumin
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (or more to taste)
1/3 cup whole milk
1 (20 ounce) bottle Coca-Cola Classic

Steps:

  • Cut the 2 lbs of pork into roughly 2 inch squares and place in the bottom of the slow cooker.
  • Pour the stick of melted butter in the slow cooker coating the meat. Do the same with the 2 Tbs of oil.
  • Break the one cinnamon stick in half and place to the sides of the meat.
  • Peel 5-6 garlic cloves, cutting the tips off, and break 3-4 bay leaves in half. Place the leaves and the garlic in the slow cooker, evenly distributed among the meat.
  • Add the 1 tsp oregano, 1 tsp kosher salt, 1 tsp black pepper, 2 tsp cumin, and 1 tsp (or more depending on taste) red pepper flakes, sprinkling evenly across the meat.
  • Pour the 1/3 cup whole milk in the cooker, being careful not to wash away the spices from the meat.
  • Add the Coca Cola, being careful not to wash away the spices from the meat. Add enough to just cover the top of the meat.
  • Turn the slow cooker to the "Low" heat setting. Cook for 6 hours, stirring every few hours.
  • Once cooked, remove meat from the slow cooker with a slotted spoon and place in a separate large bowl. Shred the meat using two forks, and add spoonfuls of liquid from the cooker to ensure meat is moist.
  • Serve on warm tortillas, with pico de gallo, sour cream, and chopped jalapenos.
