Carnitas for the Win!

Tia Lupita Carnitas

Line the bottom of your slow-cooker with three pieces of bacon and put the bay leaves on top of the bacon.
Sprinkle about half of the sea salt on one side of the pork roast, and the remaining salt on the other side. Place the pork roast over the bacon and bay leaves.
Place the remaining two slices of bacon over the top of the pork roast and put the lid on the slow-cooker. Turn the slow-cooker to low and let it cook for 8 hours.
After 8 hours, remove the meat from the slow-cooker with a slotted spoon to a large bowl and shred well with a fork..
