Try this recipe for Slow Cooker Pork Carnitas and you will learn why every one is turning to slow cookers for as much of their cooking as possible. Carnitas is a Spanish word referring to a method of preparing pork. In Mexican cooking carnitas means the pork has been braised or roasted, often very slowly, in order to make the meat as tender as possible. It can have a variety of spices and herbs added to the meat, and of course, given Mexican cooking, usually will have plenty of spice in the meat.

This recipe for slow cooker pork carnitas makes it quick and simple to achieve this great dish. The meat is chopped then rolled in the spice blend and tossed in to the slow cooker. Add some liquid, and cook until ready. Start eating. Of course, carnitas can be used in all manner of Mexican foods (or other foods, of course!) such as tacos, burritos or whatever else you might enjoy at home. The meat is fabulous against corn bread or corn tacos, or pretty much any bread or shell made using corn. That is because corn has a slightly sweet edge to the flavor that entirely complements the spicing. Here, you could also add fresh onion and garlic to the recipe since liquid is poured over the pork before leaving it to cook.

Slow cookers are the miracle of cooking, truly. Almost anything that you put in to this method of cooking is going to come out so delicious, tender, and yummy. It is always difficult not to just reach in to the slow cooker and start eating what ever you have made with your fingers. As well, the slow cooker sends the scent of your food around the house, ensuring that your family will arrive promptly for dinner when it is ready. Enjoy this dish soon.
