Crockpot Carnitas

I love Carnitas. I used to have a really good recipe that I made a while ago. Alas, I lost that recipe. So I tried searching for another recipe and found this one. Although it tasted pretty good, it isn't as good as my old Carnitas recipe. This dish actually lasted us 3 meals. I served this with my spin on tomatillo sauce.

3 lb. pork roast
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
2 bay leaves
2 cups chicken broth

1) Combine all dry ingredients together. Rub onto roast.

2) Place bay leaves on bottom of crockpot pan. Place roast on top of bay leaves. Pour broth around the roast. Slow cook on low for 10 hours. Shred roast with two forks and serve.
