The best carnitas

2 T cumin
2 T oregano
1 T salt
2 t chipotle
1/2 chopped onion
4 cloves, smashed garlic
3 T olive oil
4 # pork shoulder, tied.
1 1/2 cp of water

Mix all spices together (first four ingredients)
Put oil in a hot pan (but not smoking)
Sprinkle all the spice mixture on the roast. Covering all sides.
Brown all side of pork, until crispy brown- not burnt and not "kinda" brown.
In a crockpot set on high, put in onion, garlic and then roast with all juice from the pan.
Add enough water to cover almost half of the roast. Lid on, leave it alone. About 5 hours in (or when you come home from work) flip the roast (not necessary if you forget, can't, whatever).
Roast is done when it falls apart with a fork.
Enjoy and your welcome.
