Crockpot Pork Carnitas

These were so easy and so delicious. They almost rival the tastiness of the crockpot chicken tacos. The beer really adds a great flavor to the dish and gives the added bonus of causing one's husband to give them the side eye when you ask them to bring you a beer at 8 in the morning. I will be adding this dish into our regular dinner rotaion and will be making the crockpot chicken tacos less often with this "other white meat" replacement. The filling would be great in burritos, enchiladas, taquitos or whatever else you like with it.

printable recipe

1.5 to 2 pounds pork (I used pork chops, but a roast would work as well)
1 tablespoon cumin
1 can of light beer
1 jalapeno, minced
3 cloves garlic, minced
½ onion, minced

Combine all items in the crockpot and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours. Shred the pork and cook in the crockpot for another 20 minutes. Serve on corn tortillas with avocado, onion and tomatoes.
