Oh. My. God. I've been looking for a recipe for pork roast for tacos, a la Carnitas, and this one worked great. I went with a nearly five pound pork shoulder roast that was on sale. Of course, I fiddled with the recipe like everybody else... I started by browning the roast in a Dutch oven, then I added 8-9 cloves of garlic, and covered the whole thing with a pile of chili powder, oregano, sage, chili flakes, pepper, salt, cumin, and a can salsa fresca and jalapenos. Stuck it in the oven for four hours, then shredded it a little and added a pile of chopped onion and more garlic cloves, along with some assorted hot sauce and a good splash of cider vinegar. Back into the oven for another hour or two. A couple of limes squeezed into it at the end and - Perfection.
