My husband LOVES carnitas! This recipe was good, but we felt it could have been outstanding. My usual recipe is 1 large spanish onion cut into wedges and seperated by segments, 1tbsp of tumric, 2 tbsp adobo, 1 tsp cumin, 2 tbsp garlic powder, 1 tbsp sazon de goya con achote, 3 low sodium beef broth cubes, 6 cups of water, and a 1lb pork shoulder roast. Combine all ingredients in a large stock pot and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer on medium low head for 2 to 5 hours. When a fork can easily be inserted into the meat and it is seperationg from the bone it is ready. drain excess liquid and shred. place in a baking pan, bake at 400 for 10-15 min. squeeze fresh lime over the top sprinkle with additional adobo and serve with tortillas and yellow rice. Enjoy :)
