slow cooker carnitasPosted: June 20, 2018
I made it recently. I seasoned the pork with chipotle powder and garlic as the recipe specified. I used minced onion rather than a fresh onion. I used powdered cinnamon rather than cinnamon sticks, and I used a pork tenderloin (I had half a one in the freezer) rather than pork shoulder. I used zest and juice from an orange as per the recipe, but I omitted the orange soda. (Please!)
The online recipe specified crisping the pork under the broiler, though on the TV show Jeff used a Panini press. I did neither.
The recipe specified using tortillas. I served it with deli rolls instead.
It wasn’t the best slow cooker carnitas I’ve made, but it was quite good.
