  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt, or more to taste
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

YIELD
8 servings

Instructions

  • Season pork with pepper and salt.
  • Heat oil in large pot over high heat. Working in batches, cook pork in the hot oil until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes. Return all cooked pork and accumulated juice to pot.
  • Season pork with bay leaves, cumin, dried oregano, and cayenne pepper. Stir in fresh orange juice, orange zest, and milk. Bring mixture to a boil over high heat; reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until meat is fork tender but not falling apart, about 2 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  • Remove pork from liquid. Skim some fat from the pot to grease a baking dish. Transfer the pieces of pork to the baking dish. Drizzle about 2 more tablespoons of the floating fat over the meat. Season with more salt, if needed.
  • Bake in preheated oven until pork is browned, about 15 minutes. Stir pork.
  • Turn on oven's broiler. Cook pork under broiler until crisp, 2 to 3 minutes.
