2. Add to Dutch Oven: Add the pork, water, onion, lime juice, orange juice, oregano, cumin, bay leaves, salt, and pepper to a 6.5 qt or larger dutch oven. Add the spent orange halves on top.
3. Simmer: Place the pot on the stove over medium-high heat and bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally.

At the 1 hour mark remove the pot from the oven and flip the pieces of meat, bringing the pieces from the bottom to the top and vice versa.
