I’ll be honest, this post is more about the pictures than the recipe. Because seriously, Vegetarians aside, who doesn’t love looking at photos of roasted meat?
Not this chick – I could stare at these pictures all day!
It’s like a beautiful, meaty landscape where crispy crust meets tender, succulent shreds of porky goodness! And of course I actually got to eat it – the memory of which almost brings a tear to my eye. It was pork-tastic!
Excuse me while I indulge this memory with a moment of silence……
Soooo you’re probably wondering how you can recreate this masterpiece of Porcine perfection, and the good news is, I’m here to tell you!
This roasted pork recipe is so easy, there is no excuse not to be putting this on your dinner menu ASAP! All you need is time – for some of you that will mean making it on the weekend but it’s totally worth it, I promise! And once you shred the meat, it can be used for all kinds of delicious dishes.
I served it to our guests with corn tortillas, salsa verde, chopped cilantro, lettuce, sliced avocado, Greek yogurt and shredded cheddar cheese. It was a huge hit!
Since I’m doing the Whole 30 this month I ate mine salad style with no dairy – it still tasted amazing!
I ate the leftovers cold out of the fridge for 2 days and then I put the rest in the freezer where it’s destined to turn into a green chili sometime later this month.
You don’t have to go the Mexican route either – this easy roasted pork shoulder would be equally tasty served alongside Cheesy Cauliflower Puree and your favorite vegetable side dish or salad.
