I would recommend you use your butcher to prep the beef for you. If you are not experienced on how to de-bone meat, you will have alot of waste, and it will take you a significant amount of time. Be prepared to babysit this meal. Took me the entire 3 hours.
Agustine’s Beer & Tequila Carnitas
From EatingWell: May/June 2010
These pork carnitas have a little more flair and much less fat than the traditional deep-fried versions common to Mexican cuisine. Beer and dark tequila give them a very special flavor. Use leftover carnitas to make burritos, sandwiches or quesadillas.

I browned the meat, then followed directions to tequila reduction, added everything back with the beer and heated it. Then put it in the crockpot on low for 7 hours. Refrigerated overnight. Next day I reheated and boiled the excess liquid away and shredded the meat. Brown this a little for some crunch. Used 2 servings and vacuum sealed the remaining in 2 portion bags.
This was soooooo good. I also used canned hatch tomatoes with peppers for my tomatoes.
This was outstanding! A good recipe for when you are in the mood to putter around the kitchen. Well worth the time.
Bone in pork shoulder? If you could find pork shoulder with the bone removed, it would save significant time preparing the meat. This was excellent. Be prepared for a long cooking time. It took me longer than what the recipe asked for.
THIS DISH IS OUT OF THIS WORLD!!! MUAHH!!!
