Notes

Slow Cooker, Oven, and Stovetop options:
Follow directions for steps 1-8 using a dutch oven for all of the browning.
For a Slow Cooker / Crockpot, after using a dutch oven for steps 1- 8, combine all of the ingredients in the dutch oven and bring to a simmer.  Transfer to a crockpot for 8-10 hours on low or 4-5 hours on high until the pork is fork tender.  Remove from heat and remove lid and let rest 10 minutes before serving.
For the stovetop, follow all of the directions through step 8 using a dutch oven and then cover and cook at a gentle simmer for 1.5 hours or until pork is fork tender.  Remove from heat and remove lid and let rest 10 minutes before serving. 
To finish in the oven, after following the directions through step 8 using a dutch oven, combine all of the ingredients and bring to a gentle simmer.  Then cover with a lid and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 1.5 hours.  Remove from the oven and remove lid and let rest 10 minutes before serving.
