Instructions Checklist
  • Cut meat into three pieces and place in a 3-1/2- to 4-quart slow-cooker. Sprinkle all over with cumin, salt, oregano and cayenne, and toss gently to coat. Add the onion. Squeeze the orange pieces over the pork; add orange pieces to cooker.

  • Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 8 to 10 hours or on high-heat setting for 4 to 5 hours. Remove meat from cooker. (Discard cooking liquid.) Cool meat slightly, then shred with two forks.

  • In a very large skillet, heat oil over high heat. Add half the pork, pressing into an even layer with a spatula. Cook for 1 minute or until crisp and browned. Turn and brown for 1 minute on the other side. Remove from skillet and repeat with remaining pork. Serve with tortillas and assorted toppers.
