Original recipe makes 2 1/2 pounds
  •  1 (3 1/2) pound boneless pork shoulder, trimmed and cut into 2 inch chunks
  •  2 oranges, quartered
  •  1 large white onion, quartered
  •  6 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
  •  1/4 cup kosher salt
  •  1 tablespoon ground cumin
  •  1 tablespoon whole black peppercorns
  •  2 bay leaves

  1. Place the pork shoulder, oranges, onion, garlic, kosher salt, cumin, black peppercorns, and bay leaves into a large Dutch oven. Add water to cover. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to medium-low, and simmer for 10 minutes. Skim off any foam that rises to the top. Cover loosely, and simmer until the meat is tender, about 1 1/2 hours. Allow the pork to cool, covered, in the broth for 1 hour. Shred the meat with two forks
