These are the easiest Carntias ever and many restaurants make them this way. This is a restaurant secret."This recipe deserves 6 medas, i think that pork has great flavors all its own, some cuts more than others, sometimes the fewer the ingredients the better, like with steak ive tired lots of seasoning, but still the only thing that makes the best steaks to me, is salt and coarse pepper and a great sear! i guess im a purest but it works for me, and this carnitas recipe is the bomb.(meaning great)..dont know what all the hooplas about on here, i have 10 recipes for carnitas, but i always go back to this one, da simpler the better,,,keep um coming lisa, " - CCheryl

Crockpot Carnitas Preparation
You may need to cut your roast in half. Sprinkle generous amounts of garlic salt all over roast and brown on all sides in a very hot skillet with a little oil. Pepper all sides as well.
Place in crock pot on low for 8 hours. When cool enough, shred with 2 forks or your hands and remove some of the fat not all.
Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large skillet until extremely hot. Places shredded pork in skillet and let it get super crunchy on one side, taste and see if this needs anymore salt. You only want some of the meat crunchy. You can flip it over for a few more minutes
That's it, you get some great Carnitas meat for tacos. Just add some diced white onion, cut up cilantro and some tortilla's.
