One fast way to crisp up the carnitas is to spread the shredded meat out in a baking pan, toss them in a little of the broth and fat from the slow cooker and place them under a broiler for just until they brown a bit.

This is pulled pork not Carnitas still looks good though. Did you here they baby cry halfway through? That was weird as was the music.
