It...was...AWESOME! Kids loved it. Thumbs up all day. If possible, buy the package of pork that's already labeled "carnitas"- it's already cut into chunks for you. Let it come to room temperature if you have the extra time. Season as directed-however I seared mine before putting into the slow cooker. I think that made such a huge difference in the flavor. Also, it only took about 3 1/2 hrs.
