Slow-roasted Carnitas


I used some fairly inexpensive pork steaks, added some extra spices and a little fresh orange juice to yield some very tasty slow-roasted pork carnitas.

What you will need

2½ pounds pork steaks boneless, if possible (or country ribs)

1¼ teaspoons kosher salt

1 teaspoon Fresh cracked pepper

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon mild or spicy chile powder your choice

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon crushed Mexican oregano

1 large orange juiced

1/4 cup water

4 large Roma tomatoes or tomatillos

2 jalapeño peppers or serrano peppers

2 green onions

1-2 tablespoons chopped cilantro

2 tablespoons lime juice


Fresh cracked pepper to taste
