I was craving carnitas and didn't want to fight the cliche crowds, on Cinco de Mayo. This was AMAZING!!! I saved the broth, thickened it with a tablespoon of corn starch, brought it to a boil, and spooned a bit over the meat....after i shredded it, and placed it under the broiler for about 5 mins, to crisp the edges. I have to say, this may be WAY better than what I remember having in the restaurants...and I live in Northern California, so Mexican food is pretty accessible here. I followed the recipe exactly (but added one extra orange, because mine were small), my pork shoulder was approx 3.15lbs, and there were only 2 of us...we have enough for approx 1.5 more dinners for the 2 of us. My husband had 3 small soft tortillas as tacos and I just had meat. Maybe it shrinks....maybe we eat a lot. But it was AMAZING!! Thank you so much for sharing!! :) Feliz Cinco de Mayo!!
