Top-ranked recipe named "Kickass Carnitas"
Seasoned pork carnitas perfect with warm tortillas
"That was great! I did skip the rub and the oven. I cooked it on low (my crock pot has "low" "high" and "warm") and it was done in 10 hours. One day I'll actually follow the recipe...I'm sure it'll be much better.
Perhaps, due to the fact that I didn't cook it 14 hours, mine was very soupy so I added some kidney beans and at it with a spoon. For my taste, I'll put some more peppers in next time."
Braise the pork; rub pork with salt, cumin, garlice powder and cayenne peppper
Cook pork at 200F for 7 to 8 hours; add to crock pot
Roast peppers at 450F for 4-5 minutes enough to blister the skin, chop up pepppers
Add to crock pot, chicken broth, enough water to cover the pork, onion, lime juice, chopped cilantro, garlic cloves, cumin, salt and pepper
Cook in crock pot 7-8 hours, occasionally tearing apart the pork

Evelia 1 month agoI have followed the recipe every time, and of course added extra peppers. This recipe is always amazing and has never failed me.
nicolegory 1 year agoI got a lot of complements on this one. Didn't roast the peppers. Threw everything in the slow cooker and cooked overnight until the following evening. I used a pork tender roast and only 3 cans of soup.
Valerie411 1 year agoTastes great!! Put everything in the crockpot and kept it on low over night and through the day. Added an extra jalapeño and the amount of spice was perfect!
Nikhomemadegood 2 years agoThis was moist, tender, delicious and easy. I cooked it in crock pot on low 17 hours. Then I spread it in a 9x13 pan & sprayed it lightly with oil then cooked it at 400 degrees in oven for 20 min to crisp edges. Yum. Unfortunately I used a 4.5 lb pork shoulder but did not increase seasonings. Duh! Next time I will increase garlic & hot peppers.
JRowler 2 years agoWay Way WAY too soupy and the cumin was over powering. Not good for a filling but maybe add some root vegetables for a soup?
davidleary 4 years agoWasn't as spicy as I expected. So next time I am adding two more serano peppers.
