How to make roast pork shoulder, with its sauce and jelly for celebrations

Difficulty: easy
  • Total time 2 h
  • Cooking 2 h

I love these recipes with large pieces of pork for roasting because they are very grateful and always delicious. When we made the Canarian style roast leg, you already saw that it is a white meat and very tender that everyone likes and that is why today we are going to use it again in this recipe.

We start by putting the piece of shoulder in a wide oven dish and seasoning the exterior. We chop the aromatic herbs well, -I have used thyme, rosemary, sage and melissa, but use the ones you like the most- and sprinkle them on the surface of the palette. We put the oven preheated to 200ºC and let it cook.

When it takes 30 minutes, add 300 ml of meat stock and leave another 30 minutes. Then, we turn the piece and let it cook another hour. In that time, the meat will be perfectly tender and will release its juices and fat, which will be mixed with the meat broth in which it is roasted and cooked. The skin will be juicy and crisp on the outside.

Remove from the oven and fillet into slices 1.5 cm thick. The part that breaks us and the one that is near the bone, we fray it to consume as pulled pork, ideal for hamburgers and sandwiches. We keep half of the sauce in a taper and leave it in the fridge where it will curdle like gelatin. We crumble it with a fork and use it to decorate and serve. The rest of the sauce, we can heat it and serve in the usual way in roasts. Accompany with some cooked potatoes to make a garnish puree.

What to accompany the roasted pork shoulder
