I've made this before and to get the crispiness, just chunk it up and throw it on a cookie sheet under the broiler for a few minutes.

Good basic recipe but if you want the crispiness of carnitas you can season them to taste and fry them in hot olive oil. The key is to get the oil hot before you put them in so it doesn't just soak up the oil. It's best to do a handful at a time to get them crisp.
