Overall very good. The pork did not absorb as much as flavor was in the sauce. Would definitely make again. I used tenderloin and it shredded just as nicely.

I doubled this recipe using a 7 pound pork shoulder. I used fresh squeezed orange juice and added an onion. Other than that, I followed this recipe exactly and it came out so good. I made it with fried tortillas and served the beans on the side. Favorite weekend recipe!
