2 bay leaves

Trim any thick fat from surface of the meat & cut into large chunks. Place in a crock pot. Add enough water to cover by 1 inch. Sprinkle orange zest, garlic slices, onion, red pepper flakes, cinnamon stick, bay leaves, oregano, salt & cloves over meat. Cover and simmer in crockpot on low for 8 hrs or until meat is tender. Remove bay leaves, cinnamon stick and orange peel

 

 

 

Transfer meat to a shallow baking dish, keeping meat in 1 layer. Add enough of the cooking liquid to cover meat halfway. Bake uncovered in a 350 degree oven for 20-30 minutes until meat is slightly crisped. Serve topped with chopped cilantro.
