The pork used for carnitas is so tender that it just falls apart. That's why a slow cooker is ideal! You could also use this pork filling for tamales, enchiladas, tacos and burritos. Serve with soft flour tortillas, salsa and fresh coriander.
I made this and it smelt lush cooking. It filled me and my hubby and 3 boys. I found a salsa recipe on here to go with it and was divine. Mmmm could just eat it now - 14 May 2014
Great recipe. I served with pan heated corn tortilla (just one at a time in a hot, dry frying pan for about 20-30 seconds each side), shredded ice-berg lettuce, chopped cherry tomatoes, pickled jalapeños, a little shop bought salsa, sour cream and some pickled red onion (put thinly sliced red onion into a mixture of the juice of 2 limes, 1 tsp of salt, 1/2 tsp dried oregano and 1 tbsp of olive oil. Left for 30 mins at room temperature, then chill till needed). Absolutely delicious. I used a slightly smaller cut of meat, but it's fed 2 of us for 5 meals and worked out at about £1 per person, per sitting. - 08 May 2017
