1 Tsp Salt
1 Tsp Garlic Powder
1 Tsp, ground Cumin
1/2 Tsp, leaves Oregano
1/2 Tsp Coriander Seed
1/4 Tsp Cinnamon
1/4 Tsp Pepper
1/4 Tsp Paprika
4 Lb Pork Shoulder, Whole
0 Grams Bay Leaf
2 Cup Chicken Broth


Mix together all the spices except for the bay leaves in a bowl.

Coat pork with the spice mixture making sure to rub it in well.

Put the bay leaves in the bottom of a slow cooker and place the pork on top.

Add the chicken broth around the sides of the pork.

Do not pour the broth directly on the pork as this will rinse the spice mixture off.

Put the lid on the slow cooker and set to Low.

Flip the pork over after it has cooked for 5 hours.

Return the lid and continue to cook on low for another 5 hours.

Once the pork has cooked for 10 hours, it should be fork tender.

Remove from slow cooker and shred before serving.

Optional toppings and garnishes include cilantro, chopped white onion, red cabbage, avocado, salsa or anything else you like!
