Carnitas are a delicious Mexican food dish that are made with pork.
A beef crock-pot roast could be used in place of the boneless blade pork loin roast.
- Season roast with chili powder, cumin, oregano, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Add roast, water and onion to slow cooker.
- Cover and cook on low for about six hours, or until roast is fall-apart tender. Shred with two forks.
- Keep warm and set aside.
- In a medium bowl, combine cabbage and mayonnaise.
- Arrange 2 tortillas on each serving plate. Fill tortillas with roast, cabbage mixture.
- Serve with additional toppings like onion, tomato, avocado, salsa, sour cream or cilantro.
