  • Cover the pan and bring to a boil on high heat, then reduce heat and simmer until meat pulls apart easily with a fork, 2 to 3 hours.

  • Cover pork with enough broth to keep moist and use remaining broth for Spiced Black Beans.
  • To bake carnitas, pull pork large shreds and place in a shallow baking dish.
  • Spoon some broth over to keep moist. Broil pork until slightly crisp (watching carefully), turn, moisten if necessary and broil again.
