Slow Cooker Carnitas.... Mmmm. My mouth is watering as I type! This recipe is definitely one of my go-tos. Absolutely a favorite! Plus, it's simple to make, healthy, and there is always leftovers -- how can you say "no" to that? If you're looking for a "set and forget" recipe, then this is for you!
Slow Cooker Carnitas [paleo]
- 4lbs raw pork tenderloin
- 1 Tbsp chili powder
- 1 Tbsp cumin powder
- 1/2 Tbsp Real Salt
- 2 tsp minced or crushed garlic
- 1 Tbsp minced jalapenos
- 2 Tbsp lime juice (fresh or Santa Cruz Lime Juice works great!)
Spray raw pork with Eat Cleaner Seafood + Poultry Wash and let sit for 2 minutes. Rinse pork, pat dry, and place fat cap up in a large slow cooker. Top with remaining ingredients. Cook pork for 8 hours on low heat. Once cooked, scrape fat cap off and remove pork from pan. Place pork in a large dish and shred. Drizzle about 1/4 cup or so of remaining juice from the slow cooker on top of the shredded pork (so it stays nice and tender). Serve and enjoy!
