Mexican Slow Cooked Pork Carnitas

The flavor of slow-cooked, shredded pork is so delicious, and I love using it in Mexican-style dishes. This recipe looked very simple to prepare for the slow cooker, so when I saw it on C + C Marriage Factory I saved it right away!

I didn't really make any changes to this recipe - except that I didn't feel like buying Adobo so I looked at the ingredients in the store and found it is just a mixture of garlic powder, tumeric, and salt and pepper. So I just used a combination of those while rubbing it into the pork.
You can use the shredded pork for any number of dishes: I used it in tortillas; when you click on the link below for the recipe you can see the Christina served it over rice.

I served this with a side of Corn, Tomato, and Avocado Salad. And someone else wanted to say hi :)

I could eat this stuff every night and not get sick of it! The corn salad looks awesome, too. I'll have to try that as a side next time. Looks like baby girl would like to try it, too!
