Easy, tender and very tasty! Will make this again for sure.
Anne Boyer 5 Dec 2018
Awesome flavor and super easy to make
Dan Pagani 30 Sep 2018
this is awesome. i used brown sugar in mine and i think that made it a lot better too. bbq pork tacos for lunch all week
Stacy 25 Aug 2018
Definitely a keeper. Loved no advanced steps before throwing it in the crockpot

delicious! however i deviated from the recipe by using a diff. cooking method. to save time, i used an instant pot. first, seared all sides of the marinated pork (on saute), then poured in all the liquids and garlic and cooked by pressing the "meat" button on high pressure for 30 min. (on sealing). turned out great! next time..I'd prefer less or even no salt.

Added a jalapeno, replaced the limes and pepper with lemon pepper (only because i didnt want to go to the store). Now, how do you make tortillas...?
Tyler Steinhause 7 Aug 2018
Great! Broiled it a bit too long but still turned out great the flavor was awesome I let it sit overnight in the crockpot
Derrick 7 Aug 2018
This was a quick and easy dish to make. Actually I had my 14 year old son make it and it turned out wonderful
Cindy C. 21 May 2018

Seann O. 28 Apr 2018
Excellent! And easy. Tastes incredible- used tortillas and made them into Tacos and burritos with guacamole
Marina 20 Mar 2018
It was so good! Definitely going to make it again.
Renée B. 18 Feb 2018
Cooked it too long not as moist as I’d like omitted chilli for kids might try adding cider next time to infuse the meat
Greg 4 Feb 2018
Great used our new crock pot version of the insta-pot took 1 hour to get the pork shoulder cooked correctly
Jeff W. 13 Jan 2018
very delicious will make.again
Sara W. 17 Dec 2017
Awesome! Tastes just like Chipotle!
Bowersox 7 Dec 2017
Solid! Decided we wanted a carnitas Mac and cheese bowl. Turned out faaaantastic
Meghan G. 19 Nov 2017
Best carnitas ever you need to use the liquid from crockpot to get the best flavor
Megan 17 Oct 2017
Very good. Mine was done in 6 hours.
Melissa R. 15 Oct 2017
Luscious and tender!
Cook 14 Oct 2017
There’s another recipe for crockpot carnitas on buzzfeed that calls for a bit heavier on certain seasonings, an orange, and onion. It is perfect. So for that, I give his one 3 stars as it’s close but not quite there in terms of full flavor.
Yvette Holzgraf 11 Oct 2017
Awesome, so yummy!!!

Very good and simple to make. Stayed moist after being in the broiler (maybe I just put enough of the juice on top). My household loves lime so we squeezed an extra lime over it after we took it out the broiler.
Era Robinson 31 Aug 2017
This recipe is a staple in our house. It takes 15 minutes to assemble and I come home to a home cooked meal that smells and tastes amazing.
Paige Weinrich 1 Jun 2017
Amazing! My husband and I enjoyed it even more the second day!
Mia 7 Apr 2017
This dish is amazing! Super easy and wonderfully prepared with savory herbs and spices. I highly recommend this recipe and look forward to making it to bring to potlucks and community gatherings! Lots of protein and low fat! This dish feels like you spent slot more time and effort than you actually have to! A big hit with my family!
Ashley Kopenhefer-Hendry 15 Mar 2017
Would certainly rate this higher if the cinnamon had not over powered the rest of the flavors. We just threw it on some brioche buns with chesse and El Pato jalepeno sauce and that helped tone down the cinnamom flavor. Will try this again without the cinnamon.
Tracey Richason 1 Feb 2017
Loved it! Served it with brown rice, black beans, with lettuce, tomato, cheese, and sour cream in a bowl.
Katie Benzer B. 8 Nov 2016
Very delicious! We used pineapple orange juice instead of regular orange juice, so when it was paired with enchilada sauce/salsa/hot sauce, it came out with a sweet and spicy flavor.
Ashley 14 Sep 2016
This recipe turned out great! I took the meat out of the broiler a couple times to mix it up. I kept doing this until all the edges were crispy.
