I'm so excited to be guest posting over here today on Bobbie's 30 day food challenge!
I'm Sumo, from Sumo's Sweet Stuff!
Today I'm going to share one of my favorite go-to recipes: Pork carnitas from the crockpot!
I love my crockpot; it's a great way to make a tasty meal without having to do a whole lotta work.
1 T packed brown sugar
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp dried oregano leaves
1 T beef base
1 tsp salt
Freshly ground pepper
4 lbs pork loin roast
1/2 C water
Juice of 1 fresh orange
Juice of 1 fresh lime
2 T soy sauce
2 T chopped fresh cilantro, or 1 T dried
I combine all of my dry ingredients and mix them together first, before putting them in. I like to rub my pork with the dry ingredients, and then add the rest.
Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
Remove from crockpot and shred.
Return to crockpot so your pork can sit in all those yummy juices.
Serve with your choice of fixings!
(In case you are wondering, the correct way to eat them is with cabbage, cilantro, cheese, and fresh lime juice.)
