Roasted Pork Shoulder Recipe

Roasted Pork Shoulder Recipe

When I discovered Puerto Rican food, I was hooked. I’ve made this recipe my very own through trial and error, by researching ingredients and adding more or less of them to my taste. I think the results in this dish are just right.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + marinating Bake: 2-1/2 hours YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 12 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro
  • 3 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons dried oregano
  • 2 tablespoons whole peppercorns
  • 1 boneless pork shoulder butt roast (3 to 4 pounds)
  • 10 cups water

Directions

  • 1. In a food processor, combine the first eight ingredients. Cover and process until combined. Pour into a large resealable plastic bag; add the pork. Seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
  • 2. Drain and discard marinade. Place roast on a rack in a roasting pan; pour 2 cups water into pan.
  • 3. Bake, uncovered, at 450° for 1 hour. Reduce heat to 400°. Bake 1-1/2 to 2 hours longer or until meat is tender, adding more water to the pan as needed. Let stand for 15 minutes before slicing. Yield: 8 servings.
