Carnitas is Mexican pulled pork and, served on tortillas with avocados, onions and salsa, it makes for a quintessential taco that is totally addictive.
Smarts: Restaurant-style carnitas is usually braised and deep fried for tender pieces of pork with crisp edges. To get those crunchy bits in this slow-cooker version, use the optional step to pan fry the portion of the pork for tonight's meal (save half of the pork for Thursday).
