Step 1

In a small bowl place oregano, cumin, black pepper, salt, and chili powder, then stir together.

Step 2

Trim any excess fat from the pork shoulder (but remember that some fat is good), then rub the spice mixture generously around the entire pork shoulder and place in the slow cooker.

Step 3

Add the onion, minced garlic, jalapeno and orange juice in the slow cooker. Cover and cook on the low setting for 8-10 hours, or high heat for 5-6 hours (until the meat falls apart).

Step 4

Remove the pork from the slow cooker to a large cutting board and use two forks to shred the meat. Don't get rid of the liquid as you will be using it later.

Step 5

Place the shredded pork on a baking sheet. Pour 1 cup of the reserved slow cooker liquid over the pork to keep it moist and tender.

Step 6

Broil for 5-10 minutes or until the meat becomes golden browned and crispy on the edges.
