Crockpot Corona Carnitas May 9, 2012

Filed under: My Recipes — kariryerson @ 7:14 am

How about that for some alliteration? I bought a giant pork shoulder roast on sale a few months back and have been waiting to use it. I have seen a bunch of crockpot carnitas recipes online so I decided to give it a try. I made mine in advance and then heated what I needed in a pan to crisp it up and froze the rest for later use. I made a huge batch


  • 7lb pork shoulder roast
  • juice and zest of one orange
  • juice and zest of one lime
  • 1 bottle Corona
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp ground corriander
  • 1 tbsp Mexican oregano
  • 2 tbsp cumin
  • 2 tbsp garlic salt
  • 1 tbsp Ancho Chili Powder
  • 4 cloves garlic


In a crock pot combine the beer, juices and bay leaves

In a bowl combine zest, garlic and spices

Cut your roast down to manageable pieces and rub each piece with the spices before placing in the crock pot.

Cover and cook over low for 8-10 hours or until pull apart tender.

You can eat at this point as is or crisp pork in a pan.
