1. Prepare Retried Beans, omitting cheese.
2. Place pork, onion, sliced carrot, garlic, salt, epazote, cumin and coriander seeds in 5- or 6-quart (5- or 6-L) Dutch oven. Add just enough water to cover pork. Heat over high heat to boiling; reduce heat to low. Simmer, covered, until pork is tender, 2 to 2 1/2 hours.
3. Prepare Fresh Tomato Salsa.
4. Heat oven to 350°F (180°C). Remove pork from cooking liquid; strain and reserve 1/2 cup (125 mL) of the liquid.
5. Place pork on rack in roasting pan. Roast, turning once, until well-browned, 40 to 45 minutes.
6. Trim and discard outer fat from pork. Using 2 forks, pull pork into coarse shreds. Combine pork and reserved cooking liquid in medium skillet. Cook and stir over medium heat until pork is evenly moistened and hot, 3 to 5 minutes.
7. If not freshly made, soften and warm tortillas Reheat beans, if necessary.
