Slow Cooked Pork Carnitas (Mexican Pulled Pork)

Ingredients:

2 1/2 pounds trimmed, boneless pork shoulder blade roast
2 teaspoons kosher salt
black pepper, to taste
6 cloves garlic, cut into sliver
1 1/2 teaspoons cumin
1/2 teaspoon sazon (I used homemade)

Directions:

Season pork with salt and pepper. In a medium sauté pan on medium-high heat, brown pork on all sides for about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

Using a sharp knife, insert blade into pork, cutting small holes and insert garlic slivers all the way in so you no longer see them. Season pork generously with cumin, adobo, sazon, oregano all over.



Pour chicken broth in the crockpot, add bay leaves and chipotle peppers. Place pork in crock pot and cover. Cook low for 8 hours. After 8 hours, shred pork using two forks and combine well with the juices that accumalated at the bottom. Remove bay leaves and adjust salt and cumin as needed. Let it cook another 15-30 minutes.
