Pork Carnitas with Carmelized Onions and Chipotle - From Cooking Light

This is a delicious recipe for an in-expensive cut of pork. It can be served on tortillas or over rice. Start by rubbing the pork with a mixture of chopped oregano and ground pepper, two bay leaves and 2T of olive oil. We used country style boneless pork ribs, about 1 1/2 lbs served 2 generously. Allow the pork to marinate with the rub for several hours or over night. Cut the pork into 1" cubes and brown in olive oil. Remove the pork and add, 2C chopped onions, 6 cloves of minced garlic, 1t salt, 1/2t ground cumin, 2T chopped chipotle in adobo sauce. When the onions are golden brown, add 14 oz. of chicken stock, add the meat back to the pan and simmer until the pork is fork tender, 2-3 hrs. Remove the bay leaves, stir in 2t fresh lime juice and some chopped cilantro. Serve with sliced avacado, tomato and grated cheese.
