5 pound pork shoulder/butt roast - trim fat
1 good dark heavy beer
1/2 cup orange juice
juice of 2 limes
1 small onion diced
3-4 garlic cloves minced
3 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce - chopped (these come in a can - as pictured - save the left over for another dish)
1 bunch fresh cilantro (give or taken depending on how much you like cilantro)
start with 2 TBL Cumin, add more at the end if needed
start with 1 1/2 TBL Adobo seasoning, add more at the end if needed
salt to taste
Toss all ingredients in the crock pot and cook all day (at least 8 hours) the pork will start falling apart, shred with a fork while it is still in the crock pot - it should shred very easily. Taste - add more cumin, adobo and or salt if needed.
There are a couple of things I like to do with the carnitas; 1, make tacos (as pictured) and 2, make flautas!
Things I like to top my tacos with -
Queso Fresco Cheese
Oh and I LOVE them on corn tortillas, the kids - well they like flour. To each their own. :o)
Serve with rice and beans - and bam, dinner is served!
