Well, I’m finally getting back into the swing of things as end of summer approaches. May have posted another carnitas recipe, but so what.
Who doesn’t have a pork butt on hand? This is a super simple recipe & is good for having nice meal then leftovers for the week or nice for potluck. Just a pork butt & tortilla – you have a meal.
I won’t get all up in your grill about this dish as it is my first post in a while & I need to work up to being witty / funny.
Just want to say that this is a – drop it in & leave it meal.
- 4 lbs pork butt
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1 tsp ancho chili powder
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp coriander
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 3 cloves garlic
- 2 bay leaves
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 1/2 onion – diced
Mix all ingredients & pour on top of the pork butt.
Set the crock to 10 hrs, but will most likely only take about 8 hrs. Don’t want to let it go too long, as the meat will turn into mushy meat mess.
Serve this amazing meat concoction on small tortillas w/ shredded lettuce or cabbage. Please don’t add a bunch of cheese/sour cream or whatnot, that is so taco bell.
I served w/ good dollop of guacamole/chips & corn on cob (yellow & white for good measure) on the side.
Hell yeah, back the crock up!
