How to make it

  • Cut pork into strips, about 2 inches by 3/4 inch or so. Remember, to keep the fat on the meat.
  • Place the meat in a large Dutch Oven or stock pot, cover with enough cold water to just cover the meat.
  • Add the orange juice, garlic, spices and salt.
  • Bring the contents to a boil and then let simmer, uncovered on low, until the water is almost evaporated (about 1 1/2 hours). OR:
  • Use slow cooker and heat on high for 1 hour and low for 6 hours
  • Then, turn the heat up, let the water completely evaporate.
  • And then marvel as the pork starts to render and cook in its own fat (about 30 minutes).
  • Flip the pork pieces a few times to make sure it’s evenly browned.
  • For tacos, serve the meat on top of corn or flour tortillas along with salsas, avocado, cilantro or any fresh Mexican condiment.
