I can't recall where this one came from, but it's great to have on hand for busy nights!  Double the recipe as written for quart jars. 

Pork Carnitas (Pressure Canned)

In each pint jar add: 

1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp canning salt
1 bay leaf
1/4 tsp onion powder and garlic powder
1/2 tsp orange juice concentrate
1/2 tsp oregano
cubed pork to fill jar

Then add:

1 ounce water 

Leave 1" headspace

Pressure can 75 minutes for pint and 90 minutes for quarts.

When ready to use, you can crisp up the meat on a cookie sheet in the oven before serving.
