Slow Cooker Lemon Pork Recipe

Yesterday I posted a picture on our Facebook fan page of me throwing some dinner into the crockpot and making my famous Lemon Pork recipe.




We usually eat more leaner meats like chicken, fish, and turkey unless my husband is grilling but I still try to make this recipe for them occasionally since they all love it.

It is super easy and requires no thinking!

Now that is my kind of recipe--especially since homeschooling and working online takes up a lot of time and brain space, I really appreciate when I can add more simplicity to my life.

Since we have a large family of 11 you can half this recipe if your family is smaller.

Here it is:


SLOW COOKER LEMON PORK

2 Pork roasts

3  large onions

2 large green peppers

1 large bottle lemon juice (fill crock pot half way up)

Himalayan salt (or garlic salt)

pepper




You could also add some of the following for variation:

lemon slices

chopped garlic

cilantro

cumin

Sazon




Add all the ingredients and cook it on high from 5-7 hours or until it is easy to pull apart. We like to shred this dish and use it for tacos. We use corn tortillas, Mexican crumbling cheese, sour cream, onions, cilantro and hot sauce or salsa.





If you don't have a crock pot, you can also make this dish in an Instapot too (with a way shorter cooking time)!







We hope you enjoy it!

  2. You can, but we don't. We let it sit in the juices and just fill the tacos with the pork filling straight from the crock using tongs!
