Paleo Pork Carnitas

I heart Mexican food. Much of what I love, however, does not fall under the Paleo umbrella, so I find myself avoiding it altogether to try and eat well. Finally, I decided to break down and make something Mexican, easy, tasty, and Paleo. Success! Try it out.

Paleo Pork Carnitas:

2-3 lb pork roast, cut into 1" cubes
Olive oil
1 to 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp chile powder
2 bay leaves

Heat a few TBSP of olive oil in a large skillet. Mix all spices together and coat pork cubes with spices. Brown pork in olive oil, turning frequently. Place chicken broth and bay leaves in crock pot and add browned pork. Cover and cook on low for about 8 hours or until pork pulls apart easily with a fork.

Serve with sliced avocado and Coconut Flour Tortillas:
