Slow Cooker Carnitas

No-fail carnitas. Delicious and makes enough for a party. Even more delicious if you reduce the meat amount and remove the broth/beer. No need to change spice levels.

Slow Cooker Carnitas
from Buzzfeed

4 lbs. boneless pork butt/shoulder, cut into 6 equal pieces
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1 Tbs. oregano
1 Tbs. cumin
8 cloves garlic, crushed
3 bay leaves
1 cups broth or beer (not necessary is using smaller amount of pork)
1 lime, juiced
1 large orange, juiced (save juiced halves)

1. In slow cooker, combine all ingredients (including spent orange juice halves) and combine until meat is well coated.
2. Cover and cook low for 8-10 hours, until meat pull apart easily.
3. Remove pork, and transfer to foil-lined baking sheet. Shred pork and spread across the baking sheet in single layer.
4. Pour 1 cup remaining slow cooker liquid over shredded pork. Broil for 5-10 minutes until meat is brown with crispy edges.
5. Serve and enjoy.
