Pork Carnitas are basically Mexican flavored pulled pork. Could be served as a dish by itself or used as an ingredient in tamales, tacos or burritos. This is an easy restaurant copycat recipe for Chipotle Mexican Grill's Pork Carnitas.


1 pork shoulder roast

2-3 Tbsp olive oil

4 medium tomatoes

1 onion, thinly sliced

1/2 tsp dried oregano

1 tsp cumin powder

2 bay leaves

2 whole cloves

2 dried chipotle chilies

3/4 cup water or meat stock

Salt and pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 325°F.

Salt and pepper the pork and allow the meat to come to room temperature.

Add olive oil to a large oven proof pan.

Sear the pork over medium high heat to brown on all sides.

Remove pork from the pan and let rest for 10-15 minutes.

Add onions and cook over low heat until translucent.

Return pork to the pan and add the remaining ingredients.

Cover and place in the oven.

Cook for 2-3 hours until the internal temperature reaches 140-150°F.

Let pork roast rest for 10-15 minutes before slicing.
