DIRECTIONS

  • Zest the orange (grate only the colored part of the skin), and juice it.
  • In the bottom of your slow cooker or clay pot, sprinkle half of the seasonings and half the orange zest.
  • Set the meat atop seasonings, then sprinkle remaining half of seasonings/zest over.
  • Pour the orange juice around the meat. Add enough water, if necessary, to just cover the bottom of the pot and moisten any seasoning that didn't adhere to the meat.
  • Cook in the oven at about 250 degrees F for 5-6 hours or until it shreds easily with a fork. Or in your crockpot, medium 6-8 hours.
  • Serve with shredded cheese and sour cream.
  • If you want to be more labor-intensive, use fresh sliced onion and minced garlic, butterfly the meat or stab it several times and work the seasoning into the meat before popping it into the oven.
  • These flavors could also be used with chicken -- maybe a whole bird, stuff the cavity with the spent orange -- remove the lid to brown the bird for the last 1/2 hour of cooking.
