Slow-Roasted Pork Shoulder with Carrots, Onions, and Garlic

Scott Phillips

Servings: 4 with leftovers (or 8 without).

This succulent roast with meltingly tender vegetables couldn’t be simpler to make: just pop it in the oven in the morning, and let it cook slowly all day long. the result: meat with an amazing fall-off-the-bone texture.

Ingredients

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 6-3/4- to 7-lb. boneless pork shoulder roast
  • 1 large yellow onion, cut into 1/2-inch-thick rings
  • 3 medium carrots, cut into sticks 1/2 inch wide and 2 to 2-1/2 inches long
  • 10 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 cup dry white wine

Preparation

  • Combine 2 Tbs. salt and 2 tsp. pepper in a small bowl and rub the mixture all over the pork. Put the pork, fat side up, in a large roasting pan (about 12x16x3 inches). Cover and refrigerate overnight or for up to 3 days.

    Remove the pork from the refrigerator and let sit at room temperature for 1 to 1-1/2 hours before cooking.

    Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 300°F. Uncover the pork and roast until tender everywhere but the very center when pierced with a fork, 4 to 4-1/2 hours. Add the onion, carrots, garlic, wine, and 1 cup water to the roasting pan and continue to roast, stirring the vegetables occasionally, until the pork is completely tender, about 1 hour more.

    Remove the roast from the oven and raise the oven temperature to 375°F. Using tongs, separate the pork into 8 to 10 large, rustic chunks and spread out on the pan. If most of the liquid has evaporated, add a splash more water to the pan to create a little more juice. (It shouldn’t be soupy.) Return the pork to the oven and continue to roast until nicely browned on the newly exposed surfaces, about 15 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven, transfer the meat and vegetables to a serving platter, and tent loosely with foil. Let rest for 20 minutes. Skim the excess fat from the juices and serve the juices with the vegetables and meat.

Serve the pork and vegetables with Creamy Garlic Mashed Potatoes or Garlicky White Beans.

    Used a pork loin roast with bone (2 3 1/2+ from YDFM). Substituted cider for wine. Don't change recipe and ''tis perfect. However, don't shred pork finely. It will break Down too much when used for ragu. Would be better left in smallish cunks.

    We used a rub from a different pork shoulder recipe but otherwise followed this exactly and love it!!!! We tripled the veggies and did have a few leftover.
