  • 2 lb - 3 lb package of Smithfield Marinated Boneless Pork Shoulder Seasoned Carnitas
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock

Corn Salad

  • 1 cup sweet corn

Serving suggestion

  • Serve with Seeds of Change Quinoa and Brown Rice with Garlic Pictured


  • Put carnitas in an Instant Pot or slow cooker. If in the instant pot, cook for 30 minutes to an hour
  • If in the slow cooker, cook 3-5 hours.
  • Meanwhile, prepare corn salad by draining corn, and mixing 1 cup corn with 1 cup rinsed and drained black beans, red onion, cilantro, and lime juice, salt and pepper in a large mixing bowl, then set aside.
  • When pork is done cooking, shred, and place on a cookie sheet and broil on high for 3-5 minutes until edges are a little crispy!
  • Great for meal prep!


I used Seeds of Change Quinoa and Brown Rice with Garlic (Pictured) for my grain in my meal prep bowls, it takes 90 seconds to prepare. Feel free to use your favorite option.
