Steps (5)

  • Step 1
    In a small bowl, stir the Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Seasoning & Salad Dressing Mix Shaker with the olive oil. Rub the mixture all over the surface of the meat.
  • Step 2
    Place the pork in a slow cooker and top with the onion. Squeeze the orange juice over the meat and place the two spent halves into the pot. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours or on high for 4 hours.
  • Step 3
    Once the meat is cooked and cool enough, pull apart with a fork.
  • Step 4
    Serve with tortillas and desired toppings (cabbage, sour cream and avocado work well).
  • Step 5
    For a more traditional preparation, heat a large sauté pan coated with olive oil over high heat. Press the carnitas into the pan and cook until crusty on one side before serving.
  • For safe meat preparation, reference the USDA website.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yummy! These are so delicious and so easy to make, I used an additional tablespoon + of the dressing mix. So flavorful, I use leftovers to make nachos and just add shredded Mexican cheese on top & pop in the oven for about 10-+5 minutes.
