Last night I made pork Carnita’s, and wow, they were frigging fantastic. Hubby brought home a boneless pork shoulder for about $9.00 and we froze enough for 3 more meals and there is enough for tonight’s supper So for roughly 2.10 per for the main part of dinner that’s not bad, so if your interest in the recipe check it out.
Slow Cooker Pork Carnita’s:
Dry Rub: 2 Tbsp Sea Salt,
1 -1/2 Tsp Black Pepper,
2 Tsp Ground Cumin,
1 Tbsp Oregano
1 Tsp Onion Powder,
3 – 4 lbs Boneless Pork Shoulder or Butt
Rub all over Pork, make sure you cover it, place in slow cooker.
Now, chop up a Hot Pepper (deseeded & chopped)
1 small Red Onion (finely chopped)
1 cup of Orange Juice (Fresh is best, 3 oranges but use what you have)
Now place in slow cooker on High, for about 8 hours, with the fat cap up and leave it, but I have to fair warn you, the smell will fill your house, and drive you and your family insane while they are waiting, it will be tortuous.
Now if you freeze some, make sure to have some of the juices in there with the pork. but to make this Carnita’s you would take some of the pork after it is forked apart, drop it in a frying pan, and golden it up and flip. now you can make tacos, or burritos, or enchiladas, or take some of this pork and place on top of a bed of salad to keep with the healthy stature. Anyways please enjoy, and if there is a recipe or something you would like to see please feel free to say something, I just love my Cross products.
Remember have an awesome day, treat others like you want to be treated, and live life to its fullest!
