  • In a small bowl, combine chili powder, cumin, oregano, salt and pepper. Season pork loin with spice mixture, rubbing in thoroughly on all sides.
  • Place garlic, onions, orange juice, lime juice and seasoned pork shoulder into a slow cooker. Cover and cook on low heat for 8 hours or on high heat for 4-5 hours.
  • Remove pork shoulder from the slow cooker and shred the meat before returning to the pot with the juices; season with salt and pepper, to taste, if needed. Cover and keep warm for an additional 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to broil. Place carnitas onto a baking sheet and broil until crisp and crusted, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Serve immediately.

    Really tasty! I didn't have any oranges or limes, so I used bottled lime juice and frozen concentrated pineapple-orange juice. Maybe better with the real thing, but delicious with what we had.
