Here is another installment to the Plaid and Paisley Originals!
Let’s face it we all love a night off from cooking but we hate the guilt of getting take out for our families. Crock pot recipes were invented for this very reason. You can rub the meat and sear it first thing in the morning and let that baby slow cook all day while you are at work. You will be welcomed home to the most amazing scent of cooking meat and spices all melding together!
Tell me you don’t want to dive right in and start to chow down? True to it’s name and it’s flavor combination you are looking at the easiest way to make Carnitas. Traditionally Carnitas take all day on the stove top cooking and cooking and rendering and rendering. This little trick with the crock pot takes all the work out and you don’t have to keep skimming all that yucky foam off that your get when you cook pork. Once you take the meat out of the pot and it all just tears apart so easy leaving you with tender juicy seasoned meat. A quick pop in the broiler and you have that perfect crispy texture that Carnitas are famous for! The best accompaniment to these tacos is a fresh and tangy Broccoli Slaw.
This slaw is tangy and spicy and just a little bit sweet. A true spin on the classic picnic cole slaw. This is made with broccoli and carrots. You can buy the broccoli slaw already julienned and ready to season. Then you have the same spices that you season the meat with some lime juice and the easiest part…. Ranch Salad dressing. This slaw is great on it’s own but even better when place in the taco with the carnitas.
I hope that you have a Fun and Safe Cinco de Mayo this year! Along with all the fun Margarita’s you drink it would be great to have this no fuss meal for everyone!
