SLOW COOKER PORK CARNITAS
For some reason I can’t say that word without a Mexican accent and drawing out the middle of the word as long and obnoxiously as I can. Seriously, I did all the prep for these pork carnitas in under a minute.
They were moist, spicy, and great snuggled in a warm tortilla with some pico de gallo, avocado, cheese, and a squeeze of lime. John loved the pork on a salad with some of the extra sauce that it had been cooking in all day.
I loved these Easy Crockpot Pork Carnitas because it uses pork tenderloin which is leaner and healthier than a pork roast.

Slow Cooker Pork Carnitas
- 2 lbs pork shoulder, butt, or tenderloin, (about 1 pound each)
- 1 15-18 ounce jar of your favorite salsa verde
- 1 10 ounce can Rotel tomatoes
- 1 4 ounce can diced green chilies
- 1 white onion, chopped in large pieces
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin
- Place all of the ingredients in a crockpot and cook on low for 8-10 hours or until pork easily forks apart. Serve buffet-style with flour tortillas, cheese, cilantro, avocado, tomatoes, lettuce, sour cream and a squeeze of lime. Make sure to get some of that yummy sauce the pork is in inside your tortilla. Add a side of Cilantro Lime Rice and black beans.
- Trying to eat healthy? Make it into a salad by placing the pork on top of some lettuce with pico de gallo and a squeeze of lime.

Amazing! Its actually awesome post, I have got much clear idea
on the topic of from this piece of writing.
This was absolutely DELICIOUS! The recipe is very similar to the one that one was given to me. I add several sprigs of fresh cilantro to the broth in which the pork is simmering. Thanks for sharing, Christy!
What size crockpot did you use? I didn’t know if my 4 qt would be too small or if I should use my 5 qt instead?
4 quart should work. They aren’t very big. But if you have a 5 qt you could use that too.
Hello! Have you made this with chicken? That’s all I have today in the freezer. Thanks!!!! Love all your recipes!
Definitely! Chicken would be great.
How many servings would you say this recipe is?
I would say about 6. It shrinks down when cooking.
Wow these are some great looking recipes! Being a bodybuilder Im always looking for healthy recipes to go along with my prohormone supplements and crazy diet plan. Thanks for sharing these great ideas.
This looks great! Is it spicy at all? I have two younger children and wondered if it would be too much spice for them. Thank you!
My kids are pretty sensitive to spice. One ate it the other two thought it was two spicy. I think it depends on your green salsa. The diced chilies add a lot of spice too.
This recipe is incredible! Thank you!
This is a comment to the webmaster. Your website:Easy Crockpot Pork Carnitas is missing out on at least 300 visitors per day. I discovered this page via Google but it was difficult to find as you were not on the front page of search results. I have found a website which offers to dramatically increase your traffic to your website: http://voxseo.com/traffic/. I managed to get over 10,000 visitors per month using their services, you could also get lot more targeted visitors than you have now. Hope this helps 🙂 Take care.
Wow. This is fantastic! I find so many great recipes for the crock pot, but the cook time is TOO short for my work day. It’s so nice to actually find something with a 8-10 hour window so I can finally prep it before heading out the door, and come home to a perfectly cooked meal.
Thanks for sharing!
I just found your blog last week and I’m loving it!! I made these Carnitas last night for family and everyone raved. The flavor was amazing!! Thanks!!
I bet these carnitas would be great in some burritos too!
Salad style recipe is delightful..
I love it so much..:)
Just made this tonight – AMAZING! Husband said he could eat the whole thing on his own. So easy, so delicious… this is going to be a family favorite.
Amazing photos. Carnitas are one of my favorites!
Awe..i LOVE Kelle’s blog..so cool to see you do too! I forgot about these and must now try them! yum!
How fun to have two of my favorite blogs cooking together! I’ll have to try these!
i do not eat pork ! but this seems like a great recipe ! i think i am gonna try it with chicken 🙂
Yes, you can definitely do it with just one. I’ve done it with just one and it took around 7-8 hours. I kept the sauce the same since I didn’t want to use half a can and it was more but still good.
Do you think you coud make it with just one pork tenderloin? I would be cooking for just 1 or 2 and I’m thinking 2 tenderloins would be a waste. Maybe reduce the cooking time with only one tenderloin?
Love this and can’t wait to try it. My (3) crockpots are my favorite kitchen tools and I love to have new recipes to try! Cheers~
great pictures! and the pork does look really moist
making these this week…. YUM
Great recipe, gorgeous photos! 🙂
