Before we took that lovely walk I made an awesome dinner (slow cooked carnitas) and now I would like to share it with you!
I absolutely can't take the credit for this, I got it from this months Taste of Home magazine. I have actually found a lot of good recipes in that publication. But instead of just linking you the recipe I am going to give you the play by play (with pictures!).
3 to 4 pound pork roast
3 garlic cloves (thinly sliced) <---- I did not thinly slice mine, way too time consuming, I just chopped it
2 tsp. olive oil
salt and pepper
1 bunch green onions, chopped
fresh cilantro (1 bunch)
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup tequila (I just added extra broth because I didn't have tequila on hand and here in VA it's like a chore to buy alcohol, whole different store... pain in the butt if you ask me so I just skip it)
1 cup salsa
2 cans green chilies
gather your ingredients... what do you mean, why are their cookies in the picture, I have NO idea what you are talking about and no idea how they got there.
trim and cut your meat into equal sized pieces (I have no idea if this is important I just thought it sounded good) drizzle your meat with salt and pepper and then drizzle the olive oil on it.
This is my favorite kind of crock pot recipe, because you literally just dump all the ingredients over the pork. I used about a cup of the cilantro in the cooking part and then chopped the rest up to use when I served them
|hello? 1975 can you hear me? I am longing for my childhood apparently.|
Okay so that you know that I am not sitting around eating all day let me show you what I have made lately.
I love making these boxes and filling them with fun little gifts to give to people. I think I might do a giveaway with this one on my blog.
