How to make it

  • Trim excess fat from pork shoulder.
  • Heat 1 tsp of olive oil in heavy cast iron dutch oven.
  • Place pork in hot oil and sear each side until all sides have a nice, crisp, brown sear.
  • Add onions and sweat for a minute.
  • Add salsa, cumin seeds, coriander seeds, oregano and broth. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and cover.
  • Simmer until meat is very tender and falls off the bone, about 4 hours.
  • After meat is done braising, take pork out of dutch oven and place in baking pan. Heat over to 375 degrees and bake pork for 30 minutes until richly brown.
  • Once brown, place in broiler for an additional 3 minutes to make outside charred and crispy!
  • While pork is baking, skim salsa verde sauce of all excess fat and oil.
  • Once pork is done crisping in broiler, tear pork apart with two forks and place back in salsa verde sauce.
  • Add salt to taste and add cilantro and serve immediately.
