Great recipe. A keeper for sure. Be sure and place your roast with the fat on top, as it will keep your roast from getting too dry. To achieve a more carnitas texture, I made another batch of seasoning and when it was complete I removed it, chopped it with half the fat added a little juice and added additional seasoning and broiled for 5 minutes, then stirred and broiled several minutes more minutes. Some of the pieces will come out crispy.
We ate pork carnita tacos in Carmen del Playa and they served it with hot sauce, pineapple, tomatoes, onion, cilantro, and we added avacado on a fresh corn tortilla. Splendid! Just like it tasted on our trip.
