  1. Preheat conventional oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Heat oil in saute pan over medium-high heat. Pat pork dry and season with salt and pepper as desired, add to hot pan and sear on all sides until browned. Transfer pork to small saucepan over medium heat and add orange juice, lime juice, lemon juice, onion, garlic cloves, Mexican oregano, cumin, and chicken broth; bring to boil, cover and transfer to oven and cook for 1 hour. Remove from oven, pull out pork and shred with two forks; keep warm.
