This pork shoulder is marinated in a blend of orange, lime, chipotle, garlic and cilantro and cooked all day. The leftovers are great for tacos. 


  • 1 6-7 pound pork shoulder

  • 1 can chipotle peppers in adobo

  • 2 oranges, juiced

  • 2 limes, juiced

  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed

  • 1/4 cup cilantro

  • 2 tablespoons salt

  • 1 tablespoon pepper

  • 1 cup olive oil


  1. In a blender or food processor blend the chipotle peppers, orange juice, lime juice, garlic, cilantro, salt, pepper and olive oil together.

  2. Place the pork fat side up in a baking dish and score the skin and fat in a cross-hatch pattern. Poor the marinade all over the pork and marinate covered for at least 2 hours or overnight.
