These Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Carnitas are incredibly delicious and simple to throw together. Slow cooked in tomatillo salsa verde sauce, then pulled apart, browned in the oven, and returned to the sauce. These are a family favorite!
The weekend flew by and I can’t believe it’s already Monday again. I’m not complaining though, I live for Mondays because we get emails from my son who is currently in Peru serving a mission. Yep, Monday is my favorite day of the week, at least for the next 20 months it will be.
I love, love, love when I find a delicious slow cooker recipe. I love my slow cooker but let’s be honest (at least in my experience), some slow cooker recipes aren’t all that fabulous. I can honestly say I hit rockstar status last week when I made these slow cooker salsa verde carnitas. We were all pretty much speechless because we were too busy snarfing down these tacos. My 16-year old declared these the best tacos he’s ever eaten and that I’ve ever made and these are now his favorite. My husband kept saying over and over how freaking delicious the meat was.
There are so many reasons to love this recipe.
It’s simple, incredibly delicious, done in your slow cooker and so versatile, you can use it for tacos, burritos, enchiladas, nachos or even on its own.
After we all ate tacos we found ourselves just eating the meat right out of the slow cooker. It’s good, really, really good.
So in case I haven’t made made myself clear, MAKE THIS CARNITAS recipe, you will be so happy you did.Print
