Program your slow cooker to sauté and drizzle with oil. Once the oil is hot, add pork and sear on all sides. Add seasonings (salt, cumin, oregano and garlic), balsamic and beer, cover, and reduce heat to slow cook on low. Cook the carnitas for 6-8 hours or until cooked through and fork-tender. Remove from the slow cooker and, using a fork, pull the pork into small pieces. Keep warm until ready to serve.

Combine tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, onion, balsamic, garlic and paprika in a bowl, toss to combine the salsa. Season to taste with salt and let the salsa flavors meld together for 30-45 minutes before serving. Serve carnitas with queso fresco crumbles, cilantro, tortillas and lime wedges.
