      I made the best carnitas last night.

      1 pork butt roast
      1 onion sliced
      4 cloves minced garlic
      thyme, oregano, black pepper
      1/2 can of coke or dr. pepper

      cook in crockpot all day

      My husband can’t handle the fat that comes off of the roast. it grosses him out. So I took the roast out when it was done and shredded it. poured off the juice from the crock pot into a skillet (pretty hot).

      Let it reduce a little Added the pork to the skillet and let it fry in it’s own drippings. I added the other 1/2 of the soda. Keep an eye on it or it will burn.

      Fry the pork to your liking. Serve with flour tortillas, beans, rice,. The whole family loved it.
