Step 1/3

Place a pork shoulder in a large pot with orange juice, barbecue sauce, one large orange sliced in half, star anise, garlic cloves, salt, pepper, and chipotle sauce. Cook on low heat for 6 hours.

Step 2/3

Meanwhile, thinly slice the potatoes, place a spring form pan on top of a flour tortilla, and line the pan with the sliced potatoes creating a ring (see video). Drizzle with olive oil, then place in the freezer for 1 hour or overnight. Next deep fry in hot oil at 375 °F until cooked, approximately 15-20 minutes.
