How to Make Pork Carnita's


  • 1Rub roast with salt, cumin, pepper, mexican oregano add quartered onion to large pot and add chicken broth and enough water to just cover. Place a lid on and bring to boil. Reduce to simmer for 2 hours until or until it is very tender and pulls apart easily with forks
  • 2Place roast in a oven proof baking pan, ( I use stoneware) no lid and roast in a hot oven (400 degrees) with about 2 cups of the broth it cooked in until the roast is brown and crusty on top about an hour.
