Pork Carnitas Bowls

Pork Carnitas Bowls

I saved the step by step in my story highlights for you!!  @cleanmondaymeals


  • 1 pound pork loin (option to use chicken breast instead)
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice
  • ⅓ cup lime juice
  • 3 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • ¼ cup green chiles

For the Street Corn: 

  • 1 can yellow sweet corn
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • ½ tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • ⅓ cup red onion, finely chopped
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • Brown Rice
  • Other Ingredients
  • Black beans


Place pork loin and minced garlic into your crock-pot and turn to high. Cook for 2-4 hours. Or turn to low and slow cook for 6-8 hours (for more tender pork!). Remove pork loin and shred with 2 forks. Place shredded pork into a large bowl and add in the rest of the carnitas ingredients and mix. For instant pot, add all ingredients to your instant pot and cook on the manual setting for 30 min. Pull out and shred.
For the Street Corn
Mix all ingredients in a medium-size bowl.
Make rice as instructed.

To Assemble Bowls:
Then add ¼ of the meat (4 oz.), about ¾ cups brown rice, ½ cup street corn, and ¼ cup black beans.
Serve with fresh lime.
Sometimes I add lettuce to make it a salad.
