Ingredients

  • 2-3 lb pork shoulder roast
  • salt, to taste
  • canola oil, for cooking
  • 2 Tbsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 19 oz (540 mL) can diced tomatoes, with juice
  • small flour or corn tortillas
  • guacamole, salsa and sour cream
  • cilantro, diced onion and/or radishes

How to Make It

1.

Preheat the oven to 300˚F.

2.

Pat the pork dry with paper towel, cut it into large (about 2-inch) pieces and sprinkle with salt.

3.

Set a Dutch oven over medium-high heat, add a drizzle of oil and brown the meat well on all sides, sprinkling with chilli powder and cumin.

4.

Transfer to a plate and brown the onion in the pan. Return the pork to the pan and add the tomatoes plus a can of water. (This could all be done in a slow cooker, if you like—cover and cook on low for 6 hours.)

5.

Cover and cook for 3 hours, or until the meat is tender enough to pull apart with tongs or two forks.

6.

Serve with warmed flour or corn tortillas, topped with your choice of toppings.
