Ingredients

  • 1kg fatty pork shoulder, cut into 4cm dice
  • 1/2 orange, cut in half
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 white onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 5 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 tbsp sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • sea salt, to taste

Method

Place all the ingredients and 2 cups water in a wide, heavy-based pot and bring to the boil, skimming the surface regularly.

Lower the heat and simmer the mixture gently, stirring from time to time, for about 2 hours, or until the pork is very tender and all the liquid has evaporated.

Remove the orange pieces and bay leaves.

Preheat the oven to 220°C.

Place the pork and fat in an ovenproof dish and roast, uncovered, in the oven for 20 minutes or until browned.

Transfer to a plate and serve on fresh tortillas.
