To prepare marinade: mix together garlic, chopped onion, juices, 1/2 cup olive oil, oregano, cumin, salt and pepper. (Use can also use store bought "Mojo") Pour over pork chunks and marinate for at least 3 hours or overnight in the refrigerator.
Remove meat from marinade. Place in pot with two cups of water and 1/2 cup olive oil. Simmer, uncovered until all water boils away, 30-45 minutes. Brown the pork in the oil until crispy on the outside. DO NOT overcook! Add onion slices if you like and saute briefly. You can also finish them with a bit of fresh lime juice or serve with lime wedges.
Make sure to watch the pork carefully as it will burn quickly.
Make sure to use pork with fat as the fat will melt away and assist in the cooking process.
