Slow Cooker Carnitas

carintas shredded pork

These slow cooked pulled pork tacos are delicious. They are juicy with great flavor. The meat just falls apart and melts in your mouth.

Let’ Get Cooking!

You Will Need:

1 Pork Roast

1 Onion sliced

1 Bell Pepper sliced

2 Jalapeños sliced

2-3 tablespoons of Cilantro Paste or Fresh Cilantro chopped

1 Lime Juiced

1 Taco Packet plus 2 teaspoonfuls for Ground Cumin

1 cup of Bloody Mary Mix or Spiced V8 Tomato Juice (this really adds some great flavor)

1 cup of Light Beer (if you don’t want to use Beer then substitute with Chicken Broth).

1 clove of Garlic chopped

Pinch of Salt and Black Pepper


Place all ingredients into a crockpot and let cook on low for 7-8 hours. Once pork is cooked, shred with a fork. I usually toss the shredded pork into the juice in the crockpot, let set for a few minutes and then strain it.

Season and Serve.
