Slow Cooker Carnitas (6 Points Plus)



Serves 4
• 1 ¼ pounds Pork Shoulder, lean only, trimmed of fat
•½ Onion, diced
•1-2 Garlic Cloves, minced
•¼ tsp Salt
•¼ tsp Pepper
•½ tsp Oregano
•½ tsp Cumin
•1 diced Chipotle Pepper and 1 Tbsp Adobe Sauce
•1/3 cup Chicken Broth
•1 Bay Leaf

Season the pork with salt and pepper. Place it in the crockpot.

Mix together the remaining ingredients in a bowl and pour over the pork.

Cook for 6-8 hours on low or until the pork is fork tender and easily shreds.

Optional – Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Lay pork out in a single layer on a non-stick baking sheet. Roast for 4-5 mins until the edges become crispy and toasted.

Two servings are for dinner. One additional serving will be used for dinner on Tuesday (Quick Teriyaki Pork Stir Fry) and one serving is for lunch tomorrow)
