Slow Cooker Pork Carnitas.

The one and ONLY reason I’m not a vegetarian is because I adore (okay LOVE pork).  I love it even more when I can toss it in my slow cooker and have to do pretty much nothing for a fab dinner.  Tonight my love and I met again and it was oh-so-good!


1 -3 lb pork shoulder
1 -32 ounce Pacific organic chicken broth
3 tablespoons of ground cumin
2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon garlic salt
2 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons ground coriander
Salt and pepper


Into your slow cooker, place the pork shoulder and broth.  Cook on low for 4-6 hours.  Remove the meat about 15 minutes prior to serving and place on a platter.  Strain the fat from the broth and discard.  With two forks proceed to shred the meat.    Season the meat with all of the seasonings.  Let this sit for about 4-5 minutes and then return the meat to the crock pot with the broth.  Keep hot until ready to serve.  Serve with flour or wheat tortilla shells.  Top with your favorite taco toppings.  Enjoy!
