These slow cooker carnitas are one of my all-time favorite freezer meals. As one of my go-to recipes for large groups, our Killer Carnitas are a no-fail dump and go freezer meal.
“Woman, what have you done?!” This was my husband’s affectionate way of telling me he was a big fan of this recipe. After cooking it for 8 hours in the slow cooker, you’ll be left with fall-apart, flavorful chunks of juicy pork that you can then broil for a few minutes in order to give some extra texture. Wrap up the meat in a soft tortilla and top it with cheese, avocados, diced red onions, lime juice, cilantro, or whatever Mexican toppings you prefer, and you’ll be going loco over these carnitas.
This recipe can be found in our cookbook, From Freezer to Table.
