Crockpot Carnitas

  • 2 lbs. boneless county style pork ribs
  • 1 T. ground cumin -- divided
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 c. water
  • Cooking spray

Place the ribs in a slow cooker and sprinkle with 2 teaspoons of ground cumin and the salt. Carefully add the water to the slow cooker, cover the cooker and simmer the ribs on LOW for 6-8 hours or until the meat pulls apart easily.

Using two forks, pull the pork ribs into coarse chunks and place in a single layer on a baking sheet coated in cooking spray. Sprinkle the meat evenly with the remaining 1 teaspoon of ground cumin and spray the top of the meat lightly with cooking spray. Broil the meat 5 inches from the broiler element until the edges of the meat brown and start to bubble slightly. Remove the meat from the broiler and serve with flour tortillas and condiments like tomatoes, lettuce, avocado, salsa, avocados and cheese or use as a filling for tacos, burritos, etc.
