Crockpot Carnitas‏

Lisa's Corner Recipe and Photo

These are the easiest Carntias ever and many restaurants make them this way. This is a restaurant secret.


1 giant pork roast
Garlic Salt; generous amount
Vegetable oil

You may need to cut your roast in half. Sprinkle generous amounts
 of garlic salt all over roast and brown on all sides
 in a very hot skillet with a little oil.
Pepper all sides as well.
Place in crock pot on low for 8 hours. When cool enough,
 shred with 2 forks or your hands
 and remove some of the fat not all.
Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large skillet until extremely hot.
Places shredded pork in skillet and let it get super crunchy on one side,
taste and see if this needs anymore salt.
You only want some of the meat crunchy.
You can flip it over for a few more minutes
That's it, you get some great Carnitas meat for tacos.
 Just add some diced white onion, cut up cilantro, and warm some tortilla's.
