Since we had a 2 pound piece of pork loin left, I decided to cook it up to make pork carnitas that we could use to make tacos or freeze for later. I love this stuff!
I started with a few of my favorite things. Pork loin, beer, and fajita seasoning.
Rub the pork loin with half the fajita seasoning and place into a hot skillet or sauce pan.
Remove the pork from the pan and place into a crock pot. Pour the remaining beer into the pan to scrape up any meat or flavor bits and pour the beer into the crock pot. Cover the pork with the remaining seasoning as well.
Also cut up or shred the pork loin. I use my Salad Choppers to chop up the meat.
Use immediately or let cool and freeze to use later on for a quick meal.
