Carnitas

Step: 1: Cut the pork into 1 x 3 inch strips.




Step: 2: Place pork in a large heavy pot or Dutch Oven. Cover with the water, add salt, orange and lime juice. Bring pot to a boil and then lower to a simmer. Simmer pork, uncovered, for 2 hours. Do not stir. (But you can gently skim any foam or scum in the first 15 minutes or so of cooking, if you like).




Step: 3: After 2 hours, increase the heat to medium-high and bring the pot to a rolling boil. Stir occasionally. The water will evaporate and be replaced by fat, this usually takes about 40-45 minutes.




Step: 4: Allow the pork to be thoroughly browned in the fat, about 5-10 minutes, and then remove from the heat. Scrape any crunchy bits from the pan with a wooden spoon. Sprinkle with salt and lime juice before serving if you like. Serve as a main course or in tacos.
