I agree with the other reviews, not really a carnita, but very tasty. Will make again. I used a pork loin roast, but did not cut into cubes. Cooked whole roast (2 1/2 - 3 lbs). Didn't try out, but really doesn't need to cook that long to be tender. Time in crock pot OK if you need to get it on before work and have ready when you come home, however I would add some broth or wine or something to keep it most. Instead of onion, tomato, diced, I made some pico de gallo to put over it. Served with cheese, lettuce, and avocado on the side for more topping. Very tasty.
Not really carnitas. Should be called shredded pork tacos. That being said, the pork was tasty and tender but dry. Guess I should have mixed some of the broth in with the meat.
This recipe was a hit! And SO much healthier than traditional carnitas which are fried! YUM!
Pork Carnitas is cooked then fried...This does not call for frying...This is just cooked pork meat...
