Carnitas…all week long!

Carnitas happen to be one of my favorite meats, so I bought a giant pork butt over the weekend, and made them in the crockpot yesterday. I put about 1/2 cup coconut aminos, 2 loosely chopped white onions, a bunch of whole garlic cloves, about 6 bay leaves, sea salt, black pepper, juice of 1 lemon, juice and zest of one orange. I brought it to a boil, then turned it down and let it simmer all day for about 8 hours. I flipped 1/2 way through. Then I pulled it out and shredded it, saved the bone to make more bone broth, and bottled the broth to drink (NOM!). Didn’t waste a thing.

I have limes, cilantro, diced white onion and avocados on hand. In addition, I eat carnitas plain, on top of salads, with overeasy eggs, etc.! Now we have meat for the entire week!
