Pork Carnitas


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


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.
