Great recipe. I've never had Carnitas before, and I stumbled across this recipe when I looked up "boneless pork dinner." I really wanted to try something other than pork chops with the boneless chops I had.
I cut the recipe in third because I only had a little over a pound of pork. Worked very well.
After the pork was cooked, I pulled the meat out, fished out and squeezed the oranges, fished a few of the peppercorns out as well, and then dumped the liquid into a blender and pulverized it into a sauce! After tasting it, I hit it with a bit of sugar because *I* found it a little too sharp for me.
Served on heated corn tortillas with some shredded cheese, salsa, and sour cream with a bit of the sauce. Super tasty.
Like I said, no idea what the real thing tastes like (so I'll have to go have some at a restaurant), but my husband says I need to add this to the rotation! :)
