Ingredients

  • 3

    pound Boston Butt pork roast,

  • cut into about 12 pieces

  • 1

    large onion, quartered

  • 1

    Tablespoon cumin

  • 1

    Tablespoon coriander

  • 1

    Tablespoon oregano

  • 1

    small can chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, chopped

  • 2

    bay leaves

  • 1

    Tablespoon fine sea salt

  • 1

    quart chicken broth

  • ( enough to cover meat )

  • 2

    Tablespoons shortening or lard

Directions

Place the pork pieces in a stock-pot with the onion, spices, bay leaves, salt, chiles and adobo sauce. Cover meat with broth. Cover pot, bring to a boil at high heat, and cook for 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low, uncover pot, and simmer for about 3 hours, until meat pulls apart with a fork. Remove meat pieces using a slotted spoon, place on a platter and allow to cool. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Cut meat into 1 inch cubes. Melt shortening in a cast-iron skillet or over-proof casserole. Add pork and toss to coat with hot shortening. Cook, uncovered, for about 30 minutes, until meat is light brown and sizzling hot.
