This pork was FAN-FREAKIN'-TASTIC! We loved it. We frequent a restaurant that serves excellent carnitas, so this recipe caught my eye when I was looking for something to do with some pork for dinner.
I did make some additions, just because of my family's preferences. I used a pork loin instead of a pork shoulder and it still came out perfect. I didn't have any liquid smoke on hand, so I skipped that part. After adding the pork back to the pot we dumped a bag full of roasted, peeled & chopped green chilis because we are New Mexican natives and that is what we do. I thought it would make it really spicy, but it wasn't. I felt that the green chili added an extra dimension that we really enjoyed. We served it over warm corn tortillas with onions, tomatoes, cilantro and salsa. It was an excellent meal. Thank you for sharing this recipe, our family will repeat it over and over again.
