Pork Carnitas


Ingredients:

3 lbs. boneless pork loin, cut into 1-inch pieces

3 large garlic cloves, minced

1–2 jalapeños, minced

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp pepper

2 TB olive oil

1/2 cup fresh orange juice

1/4 cup fresh lime juice

1 cup chicken stock

Preparation:

Season pork with cumin, salt, and pepper and brown in olive oil. Transfer to crock pot and add orange juice, lime juice, jalapeno, garlic, and chicken stock. Cook for 6-8 hours.

Allow pork to cool and absorb the remaining juices. Shred meat with a fork.

I usually make soft tacos with refried beans, pork, pico de gallo, lettuce, cheese, cilantro, and a squirt of fresh lime. Delicious!

This works with beef as well.
