Last year I fell in the love with carnitas. It was a fast fall. Some might've called it lust, but almost a year and a half later, we're still going strong. I don't discriminate either. Beef carnitas, pork carnitas, tons of different flavor combinations — they're all delicious.
So when my husband bought a case of cherry Coke as a treat for when he works night shifts and I came home with a 3-pound hunk of meat a couple of months ago, I had an idea. Cherry Coke plus hunk of beef plus slow cooker. How could that not be good? The beef cooks low and slow until it's literally falling apart, and the cherry Coke coats it in a sweet and sticky sauce that's just perfection.
Serve it in tacos or on a roll, or go the healthier route and put it on top of some spaghetti squash. If you're not already a carnitas fan, I'm betting you will be after this.
