Today I made some carnitas in the crock pot with another favorite product-Goya's Mojo Crijollo. Its basically a marinade made from bitter orange, lemon and onion and garlic.
I found a slow cooker Carnitas recipe on Epicurious.com- so I figured I could use my Mojo marinade instead of what the recipe called for and throw it in the crock pot with my boneless country style pork ribs and some sliced onion and baby bell peppers.
Here's my recipe:
Carnitas with Mojo
1 1.5 pound package country style boneless pork ribs
1 bottle mojo Criollo marinade
1 small quartered and sliced
3-4 baby bells (I used orange and red)
Put all ingredients into crock pot and cook on high for about 4 hours-or until pork is falling apart. With a slotted spoon transfer pork to cutting board and pull apart with fingers. If you want you can remove the onions and peppers and discard or you can serve it along with the carnitas.
Serve in warmed tortillas with cilantro, lime, and queso fresco. You can top with salsa if you like. I prefer to top mine with queso fresco a twist of lime, cilantro and a bit of tomatilla salsa.
