Pork Roast or Carnitas (C3)

Recipe Author: Simmie Sinow

I've been using this for about 5 years; I didn't have to make any changes to make it 17 Day Diet compliant. This is one of my favorite recipes!

1 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp ground cumin
½ tsp crumbled dried oregano
½ tsp ground coriander
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
1 4 lb boneless pork shoulder roast
2 bay leaves
2 cups chicken broth

Mix together salt, garlic powder, cumin, oregano, coriander, and cinnamon in a bowl.

Coat pork with the spice mixture.

Place the bay leaves in the bottom of a slow cooker and place the pork on top. Pour the chicken broth around the sides of the pork, being careful not to rinse off the spice mixture.

Cover and cook on Low until the pork shreds easily with a fork, about 10 hours.

Turn the meat after it has cooked for 5 hours.

When the pork is tender, remove from slow cooker, and shred with two forks. Use cooking liquid as needed to moisten the meat.

Simmie’s Notes:
Although this calls for 10 hours in the crockpot, I rarely leave it in that long – and it is definitely ready to come out.   5-7 hours is more appropriate, at least with my crockpot!

The pork in this recipe really does fall off the bones of the pork roast.  You can eat this with whole wheat tortillas in C3 tortillas or not – it’s so good that I’ve just generally had the pork which is more like shredded and some vegetables or potatoes on the side.
