    The best slow-cooker pork you'll ever make! My kids think it tastes exactly like Chipotle. And, the best part is, it only costs $6.00 to make. Awesome!!!

    This dish is so easy to make! I made it for a dinner party and served it with tortillas, guacamole, cilantro, fresh salsa and limes. Everyone went back for seconds or thirds, including the kids. This dish will become one of my staples for family dinners as well as gatherings.

    My first time ever making this and it turned out amazingly delicious. The hunny loved as well as the kids, and this will def be a meal that I will be making again and often. The best part is how easy and inexpensive it was.

    Pork wasn't tender. The recipe needs to add suggestions for what to serve inside the tortillas.

    I wish I could give this 10 stars!! It was sooooooo good and easy!!!! I put it on some yellow corn tortillas with cheese, salsa, sour cream, and fresh chopped cilantro and it was SO flavorful and delicious. And my 3 year old loved it, he kept sneaking pieces of pork while I was shredding it. The pork cook perfectly after 5-1/2 hours (I turned it on medium instead of low) and it just fell apart and melted in your mouth. You could even use this recipe for the pork and put it over rice or with veggies too.

    This was fantastic! Had it on low for 6 1/2 hours, it was perfectly tender. I was out of cumin so had to use coriander, which worked out fine. Served it on tortillas with sliced avocado, tomatoes, shredded cheese, sour cream, and fresh squeezed lime juice. Great value, made 14 tacos worth, and our picky eater boys even loved them!

    I have made this recipe several times. It's so easy, and provides great leftovers for the rest of the week. My husband loves this dish! I serve the carnitas with pico de gallo and spanish rice. Then, I use all these leftovers to make carnitas burritos for the rest of the week.

    My family loved it although I added a couple cups of chicken broth and discarded after the meat was done. It was so good we didn't even have left overs!!!
