Paleo Carnitas!


Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

This was my first go at carnitas and it was delicious!


  • 1 pound of pork shoulder
  • Bundle of collard greens
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 2 tbsp garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • lemon to squeeze on top when pork is done
  • 1/2 onion, sliced
  • 1/2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 cup **MOJO**

Put the pork, dry seasonings, onion, and mojo in the crockpot. You want the pork to be covered completely so if it’s not, add water to cover. Cook on low for 12 hours. Pork should be fully cooked and able to pull apart with a fork–go ahead and pull it apart. Heat a pan over medium-high heat with the coconut oil, and cook the pork you are going to use for 5 minutes on each side–the pork should get crispy. Prepare your collard greens and slice the avocado…add the crispy pork, avocado, and squeezed lemon onto the collard greens and enjoy!
