Watch the episode
10 pounds pork shoulder-butt
Red chili sauce (see below)
Fried egg
Pickled onions (see below)
Flour tortillas

Cube the pork shoulder, cutting off access fat. Lay pork on a sheet pan and salt both sides of the pork. Submerge pork in red chile sauce and cover pan with foil. Bake the pork at 350 degree Fahrenheit for 3 hours. Remove foil and cook for another 30 minutes. The pork should be very tender and easy to pull when done.

Serve pork in a bowl topped with fried egg and pickled onions. The flour tortilla is to be served warm on the side.

2 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons garlic salt
1 teaspoon cumin

Orange juice from 5 large oranges
Lime juice from 4 limes
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon salt
1 jalapeno, diced and seeds removed
