  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Sprinkle pork all over with salt, pepper and dried oregano. Place pork roast fat-side up in a baking dish that is at least 2 inches deep. Add chicken stock, garlic, lime juice, orange juice and onion to the baking dish. Cover with aluminum foil and bake until meat begins to fall apart, about 4 hours. Remove foil and continue to cook for 30 minutes. Remove pork roast and allow it to rest. Place braising liquid into a saucepan and reduce on low to medium heat until reduced by about half. Strain the braising liquid and serve as sauce for the pork shoulder.
