THE BEST EVER SLOW COOKER CARNITAS

what makes these carnitas different? they are crisped and browned on the stove after low and slow cooking in the crock pot. these are incredibly easy to make and have replaced traditional taco filling at our house. these carnitas or "little meats" are great in tacos, burritos, enchiladas, tamales or nachos. when served with corn tortillas, they are also gluten free!
