How to Make Pork Carnitas
- Remove the orange halves from the pot and discard. Place the Dutch oven with the meat juices over medium heat and reduce to about 1 cup. While the juices are reducing, pull the pork apart into bite-size pieces with two forks. Once the meat juices have reduced, pour the liquid over the meat. Gently fold meat so that it gets evenly coated with the juices.
- Remove pan from oven. Serve immediately with tortillas or put onto sandwich rolls.
