I've been working on perfecting a good carnitas recipe.

Start with a nice pork shoulder or other large cut and tie with kitchen twine. Cut slits in the meat and stuff with sliced garlic cloves. Combine adobo seasoning, salt, pepper, and olive oil into a paste and rub this over the entire surface of the pork. Sear the meat in a skillet (I've had good luck with cast iron). Throw it in a crockpot along with onion, cilantro, a jalapeƱo and stock. Cook on low for 8 hours, then remove from the crockpot and broil the meat to crisp up the outside. Drizzle the meat with juice from the crockpot.

I like serving this with warm tortillas, fresh guacamole, queso fresco, and roasted corn.
