This Recipe is brought to you by Molly Vollmer….Great meal to make for Chipotle Bowls at home!

2 pounds pork tenderloin, 1/2 onion chopped, 3 cloves garlic minced, 1 jalapeno chopped, 2tsp salt, Juice of one-two limes, Juice of on large navel orange. All ya need is that and a crockpot!

Instructions: Pat the pork tenderloin dry with paper towels.

Combine Rub Ingredients: 1TBSP Olive Oil, 2tsp Ground Cumin, 1TBSP Oregano (Combine these ingredients and rub all over pork tenderloin, place into your crockpot). Top with remaining ingredients, cover, and cool on high 4-6hours or on low 6-8 hours. When done meat will be cooked through and very tender, easily separated with a fork. Remove the tenderloin from the crockpot and shred the meat with two forks, do not discard the juice! Place shredded meat back into the crockpot, mix and serve!

If you want to take it an extra step, after your shred the pork tenderloin, heat a drizzle of oil in a pan, add enough carnitas to cover the surface without crowding the meat. Ladle some juice, cook until the juice has evaporated and bottom of carnitas is crispy! Flip and cook briefly, but not too long, and serve!

This is great as you can add your carbs of your choice, veggies of your choice and fats as well! Rice, sweets, or with avocado and grilled peppers? Endless possibilities! This stuff is truly sooo GOOD! it is rotated on the regular here at home! Enjoy!
