Carnitas

Printed from Jenn's Food Journey, adapted from The Food Network

Ingredients:
2 1/2 lbs country style pork ribs
1 Tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper
2 teaspoons dried Mexican oregano
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 lime, juiced and zested
1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke
1 cup water
3 garlic cloves, quartered
1 jalapeno, roughly chopped

Directions:
Drizzle the olive oil over the ribs; rubbing it into the meat. Season all sides with oregano, cumin and the lime zest. Season liberally with salt and pepper.

In a crock pot, add the lime juice, liquid smoke, water, garlic cloves and jalapeno. Place the pork on top and cover with a lid. Cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 8 hours. Pork should just fall apart when try to pick it out of the pot. Remove from liquid and allow to cool before serving. Serve with tortillas, avocado, coleslaw, lettuce, tomato, whatever you desire..... the pork is the true star to this dish! Enjoy!
