Crockpot Carnitas

Crockpot carnitas are by far our most made meal since getting married a year ago. It is consistently delicious and easy to make – just dump the ingredients in a crockpot and wait a few hours! I love making tacos with them or a burrito bowl!

Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 4-6 hours Total Time: 40 minutes

Serves: 4


1lb Pork Tenderloin

1 tbsp. Olive Oil

2 tsp Cumin

1 tbsp Oregano

½ tsp Salt

1 tsp Onion Powder

1 tsp Garlic Powder

½ Yellow Onion

1 Jalapeno

1 Lime

1 Orange

  1. Pat try your pork tenderloin and black in the bottom of the crockpot.

  2. Cover the pork with olive oil and seasonings.

  3. Chop the onion and the jalapeno and add to the crockpot.

  4. Slice the orange and lime in half and squeeze out the juice into the crockpot. Place the orange and lime halves on top of the pork.

  5. Put the lid on the crockpot and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6 hours. The pork will be tender and shred easily with forks when done.

  6. Serve with tacos or in a burrito bowl!
