Hello everyone, welcome to my latest recipe for Gluten Free and Dairy Free BBQ Pork Carnitas.

I hope you are all having a fabulous Saturday.  We have just been along to our local country house that had an ancient craft fair on – you could learn how to cure things with salt, make soap and candles and also how to stain glass.  Of course I also made time for some lunch as they do excellent gluten and dairy free options. They were still serving brunch so I went for a bacon roll followed by a slice of amazing ginger cake.

Today’s recipe is for these beautiful BBQ pulled pork carnitas I made for dinner last week.  They are super easy to make as you can just stick the pork in a slow cooker and forget about it for the rest of the day.  The sauce is quick to make and you can serve it all with salad and dips in a tortilla wrap.
