"This recipe was EASY and the most delicious pork carnitas I've ever tasted! I started by browning the pork on the stove, as recommended, but then instead of simmering on the stove we popped it in the..." See more crock pot for 4 hours on high. I didn't have Chipotle chili powder, so I just used a little extra regular chili powder. I also couldn't find pork shoulder so we used pork tenderloin instead (it was on sale!). I used our small food processor to make the tomatillo sauce and it worked really well. We will definitely make this recipe again soon!"
