Slow-Cooker Pork Carnitas

This recipe was kid-tested and family-approved.  Just yesterday! 

I love a recipe that is versatile and easy to throw into the crockpot too.   Mexican-themed meals are also easy to make 21 Day Fix-approved.  Add some vegetables, a tortilla, some fresh salsa and some avocado and you're all set.

And, if anyone takes my leftovers this week, they're in trouble! 

21 Day Fix Approved Slow-Cooker Pork Carnitas

3 lbs. of pork loin
1-1/2 cup of low-salt organic beef broth (or water)

Pork Rub:

  • 2 tbsp. chili powder
  • 2 tsp. cumin
  • 2 tsp. onion powder
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. red cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Coat inside of crockpot with nonstick cooking spray.

Pour broth into the bottom of the crockpot.

Combine spice ingredients for the rub, and rub all over the pork loin.  Place into the slow-cooker and cook on low heat for 6-8 hours.
Remove pork loin from slow-cooker and shred.  Return to slow-cooker and stir, to combine with juices.

Measure out your RED container, and then serve with your favorite toppings, or simply on a salad!
