This is used to make burritos, tacos, or even a Mexican style pot roast. Although it makes a lot, it freezes well; and the broth makes a nice base for posole soup. Quantities are inexact but strict adherence to the recipe is not that crucial; I make this in restaurants and just "go by eye". Props to GaylaJ for shaming me into posting my first recipe here!

Ingredients

  • 1 (4 -5 lb) pork butt (about 4-5 lbs, but up to 10 is fine too)
  • 2 quarts water (enough to cover meat by about 2/3)
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons chicken bouillon powder (knorr is my favorite)
  • 1 (15 ounce) tomato paste
  • 20 whole garlic cloves (or 2 tbl. granulated, but fresh will work better)
  • 4 whole jalapenos, more can be used for a spicier final dish (or 2 small cans diced green chiles, or 1 small can jalepenos-not pickled)
  • 2 teaspoons oregano (dry leaf..never use ground!)
