Not the best. Oil was terrible and it was lacking flavor. Even after trying to season to taste, it was too late

Incredibly oily. I get why the recipe maker calls for that much but it was simply too much. The flavor was there, but it took several paper towels to make it palatable.

This was amazing!!! Used it in an enchilada recipe as well. People could not stop raving about them!

Amazing- best pork butt recipe I’ve tried out of at least 6. Moist and great flavor

Fantastic! After pulling it apart I browned it off in a hot wok and finished it off with some of the left over fluid from the crockpot. This made fantastic tacos topped with diced onions, curdito, and hot sauce.

These turned out pretty good! we went off of a few suggestions about the oil, and only put 2/3 cup of avocado oil in. We couldnt find a pork but under 7 lbs in our area so we had to make some estimates with the seasoning...not a huge clove fan but this was on point. And the receipe said to cut the pork but up in strips beforehand. Never heard of that with slow cooked carnitas so we left it whole and it still turned out juicy and yet crispy on the edges after a quick sear. 100% smitten with this recipe.

This was amazing! Someone else reviewed this and said their Hispanic husband approved, and so did mine! He said it was the best meal I ever made. I added the orange juice, ans I will use less ground cloves next time because I dislike the smell, but overall it was amazing!

I used one cup of vegetable oil and one cup of orange juice it turned out fantastic

it was super tender and mildly spiced. I will probably change or add some spices next time, but it's a great base and SUPER easy. I have some picky eaters, and they seemed to enjoy it. great work!

Wonderful! The flavor was terrific. My only regret was not taking the time to crisp it in a pan, but it was excellent anyway. I don't use vegetable oil, so I subbed avocado oil, which is unfortunately much more expensive. This was marvelous, so I will definitely make it again when I have a bigger grocery budget!

It was okay, but I’ll try a different recipe next time. The meat cooked too fast and didn’t tear apart like it should; I believe this has more to do with my crockpot than the recipe. If I did try it again, I wouldn’t cut the pork butt/shoulder into strips and would use less oil (subbing broth).

Good and juicy but very greasy. Next time I’m gonna replace vegetable oil with beef stock

This recipe is fantastic! I converted it to instant pot time which is 30 minutes high pressure slow release. The pork was so tender, juicy, and flavorful! Take it out of the oil to shred it. Then, crisp it up just a little in a frying pan using some of the oil it was simmered in just before serving if you want to do it right! (Use the recommended amount of oil too.)

Flavor was great! I cut the oil in half and mine were still pretty oily I may try to use enchilada sauce in place of the oil next time.

Tasted great, very greasy, will use less oil next time.

Carnitas turned out good. I only added one cup of the oil and it was more than enough. Will go with half a cup next time.

Amazing!! Only added lime juice and a splash of worcestershire sauce, and it came out so freaking good. Served in warm corn tortillas. The ground cloves were my favorite part to be honest, it gave it the perfect after taste. Also to those who say it was oily, do not shred them inside the oil!! If you think it's still oily you can also sautee them for a few minutes in a pan after shredding it.
