You’d think I lived through the depression – I HATE wasting food. But I also hate leftovers that taste like leftovers… which is why I love shredded meats! They have so many lives.  Especially  this one. It just gets better day two when you fry it up crispy in a pan. Just remember to weigh it before since it shrinks some more when the moisture evaporates.

Low Carb Shredded Greek Pork PitaSo make plenty of this crock pot carnitas and when you don’t want another night of Mexican, DO THIS with the leftovers. And if you’ve got carbs to spare, please put it in a big soft papa pita like the meatballs … because right now I can’t.
