Chipotle Mexican Grill Braised Pork Shoulder

1 (6 pound) pork shoulder, boneless
2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, thinly sliced
4 medium tomatoes
4 to 6 cloves garlic
1/2 to 1 teaspoon cumin powder
2 to 4 sprigs fresh oregano
2 whole cloves
2 bay leaves
2 dried chipotle chiles
3/4 cup water or meat stock
Salt and pepper to taste

Generously salt and pepper the pork shoulder; let meat come to room temperature, about 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Add olive oil to a large ovenproof pan. Sear the pork over medium-high heat until very brown on all sides. Remove pork from the pan; let rest on a platter for 10 to 15 minutes.

Leaving an even coating, drain excess oil from the pan. Add onions; sweat over low heat until translucent. Return pork to the pan; add remaining ingredients. Cover pan, place in the oven and cook for 2 to 3 hours or until the internal temperature reaches 140 to 150 degrees F. Let pork rest 10 to 15 minutes before slicing.

Serve with potatoes and vegetables.
