Make delicious, authentic, pork carnitas at home in your slow cooker!
Place the pork shoulder in your slow cooker.
Pour the water, orange juice, lime juice and vinegar over it.
In a large skillet, saute the onions and garlic in the oil, then pour them over and around the pork.
Sprinkle the spices over and around the pork shoulder as well, and finally top with salt.
Cook on low for 5-7 hours, or until the pork easily shreds with two forks.
Allow the pork to cool enough to handle it. Transfer to a plate or bowl where you can easily shred it and remove the bone as well as any additional fat you prefer to remove.
Use for tacos or even as a salad topper!
Can be easily frozen in portions for up to 4 months for easy grab-n-go meals.
From frozen, thaw in the fridge overnight.
