  1. Take a stock-pot, pour water and heat it. Add the pork, ribs, garlic, and onion. Bring the stock to boil and lower the heat.

  2. Take out the pork from the broth and put the broth aside. Remove the fats and then separate the meat from the bones. Also, discard the onions, bones, and garlic from the broth. Shred the pork and cover it up.

  1. To make the sauce, take a bowl of water and soak guajillo and ancho pepper till it is soft. Now, put garlic cloves, soaked peppers, oregano, onion in a blender along with the water using for soaking. Make a smooth puree.
