Slow Cooker Carnitas

Something magical happens to pork in the slow cooker, and I think Slow Cooker Pork Carnitas are about as good as it gets when it comes to Slow Cooker Summer Dinners.  All these carnitas recipes from various food bloggers feature meltingly tender slow-cooked pork, but each blogger has a slightly different twist on carnitas whether it's crisping the meat under the broiler or different seasonings.  When you look through the options, you may have a hard time deciding just which version of carnitas looks best.  No worries; you can always try more than one!
