Love having the house smell incredibly delicious? Then this recipe is for you. Make this foolproof slow cooker pork carnitas recipe today to experience the most delicious, tender pork imaginable.
Please keep in mind that the calorie count and other nutrition information for this recipe is simply for the slow cooker pork carnitas, not the whole salad.
There are a lot of other wonderful toppings for this salad:
- Sliced black olives
- Mashed or sliced avocados
- Sauteed Bell Peppers
- Sauteed Onions
- Grilled Corn cut off the cob
If you are adding the pork directly from the slow cooker on the salad, you should expect the arugula to wilt a little. Although it is a hearty green, it doesn't like heat. I let the pork cool on the cutting board for a bit.
Looking for something to do with the stuff left in the slow cooker? Perfect. Go ahead and strain out the cooking liquids from the solids. Pour some of the cooking liquid over the shredded pork to keep it nice and juicy. Add the solids to a blender or immersion blender. Blend. Add in some sour cream, salt and pepper. Taste and enjoy. It's gonna be good!
