Slow Cooker Carnitas

Slow Cooker Carnitas paleo whole30 ( I realized my slow cooker hasn’t seen the light of day in months so I picked up a 3 1/2 pound pork shoulder and made Carnitas this weekend. I like how I can just dump everything together in the pot, set it on low to cook for hours while I channel surf and wear a hole on the couch do other important things around the house.

I used this Coconut Flour Tortilla recipe from Against All Grain which yielded about 30 smaller sized ones that were perfect with my Carnitas.
