    Put in slow cooker with carnitas seasoning. Slow cook for 6-7 hours covered.

    Place all the carnitas and liquid in a baking dish and put in oven with broiler on at 400* for 30 mins to crisp up the pork.

    I added 4 Tbs of flour to the liquid in the slow cooker to make a roux, re seasoned and placed the carnitas back in the cooker for another hour. The roux will thicken

    Serve over rice or in a tortilla.
