  • 2.5 lbs Boneless Pork Shoulder for Carnitas if you can't find it cut up for carnitas, you can cut up the meat yourself into medium sized pieces

Instructions
 

  • Remove the pork from the packaging and drain any excess liquid. If you can't find boneless pork shoulder already cut for carnitas, you can cut up the meat yourself into medium sized pieces. Add your Sazon Goya seasoning OR salt and pepper OR Goya Sazonador Total to the meat.
