    1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees.In a 9x11x2 casserole dish or large roasting pan, place all ingredients.Cover with parchment and foil and bake for five hours.Remove from oven and scoop out meat
    2. Dispose of remaining liquids and solids.Place cooked pork on a foil-lined sheet pan brushed with the oil oil and place under broiler for five minutes
    3. Shred if desired.If the bottoms seem too wet, flip the pork and broil the other side for another minute or two
    4. This step needs to be watched – you want the meat to caramelize without burning it or drying it out.Serve simply in a warmed flour tortilla with chopped onion and cilantro along with some lime cilantro rice.
