Manic Monday- Pork Carnitas


Ok, obviously I talk to darn much to make this a Wordless Wednesday posting, so Repeat Wednesday it is. These Pork Carnitas can be made with beef, or chicken. I'm not a fan of chicken. I made this in the crock pot. I served this with Black Beans and Rice (I'll blog this soon, but try the Grilled Confetti Rice linked below), and a Simple Cabbage Salad. The Carnitas are served on lettuce with vegetables. You can use or tortillas also.
 Leftovers are great for lunch or breakfast. Make a soup, stew, enchiladas, burritos, sandwich on Torta bread. I love this heated up with a fried egg and sliced jalapenos on top. Such an easy meal to make.

Wordless/Repeat Wednesday's are now posting on Monday's under the tag Manic Monday*

I just put everything in the crock pot. Once the pork was tender I shredded it with two forks.
