The flavor combination in this braise is reminiscent of porchetta, and leftovers make a great sandwich. For the best results, season the pork at least a day ahead.

fabulous recipe. yes time consuming, but well worth the wait.
This was a hit! The recipe is a little time consuming but since you prepare the roast up to a few days before, it makes it relatively easy on the day you cook it. I purchased a larger roast and the braising took a little longer. However, I left off the final step of browning the pork in a 425 degree oven. I determined it would dry the meat out too much. No complaints from my other five dining companions.
Wow! Amazing recipe! It's hard to describe how fantastic a combination the pork and fennel are. I made it for a dinner party for 8, never having cooked a pork shoulder before. Pork was just under 8 lbs and I just increased all ingredients by 50%. Will make again for sure.
