Eating My Way Through the Holidays! What’s cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? Home For the Holidays: Party Pork Carnitas! Have a celebration in your mouth by taking an ordinary pork roast and turn it into a new party favorite. This is where Paleo meets Gluten-Free for an extraordinary taste explosion. The secret is in the seasoning. 

4 pound pork roast

1 teaspoon seasoned salt 

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 

1 tablespoon cumin powder

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

1 tablespoon liquid smoke

1/2 cup apple cider vinegar 

1 1/2 cups light beer

1 10-ounce can of diced tomatoes and green chilies

1 tablespoon oil

Corn tortilla chips

Preheat oven to 275°. Rinse pork roast. Rub with seasoned salt, pepper, garlic powder, cumin powder, and Italian seasonings. Place in a covered roaster. Add apple cider vinegar, liquid smoke, and beer. Bake for 5 hours. Then add the diced tomatoes and green chilies. The liquid will reduce and keep the pork juicy. Bake covered 2 hours longer. The meat will be tender and shred very easily. Heat the oil in a large skillet on high heat. Add a layer of shredded pork. Press down to cook until brown and crusty. Reduce heat and sprinkle cheddar cheese over top. Transfer to a shallow dish. Serve with warmed tortilla corn chips.
