Carnitas (in the Slow Cooker)

3 lbs pork shoulder or 3 lbs pork butt
4 cups chicken broth, hot
2 tablespoons garlic powder
2 tablespoons onion powder
2 tablespoons cumin
1 tablespoon chili powder, medium hot
2 teaspoons ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon lime juice
1/4 teaspoon salt (to taste)

Add hot chicken broth to crock pot.

Add spices and lime juice to crock pot and mix well into chicken broth.

Add pork to crock pot.

Cover and cook on High for 4 to 6 hours or until most of water is reduced and a thick gravy like sauce forms.

Shred meat and mix into thickened cooking sauces.

Use to make tacos. Sprinkle with chopped onions and minced fresh cilantro... oh my gosh. Heavenly.
