Ingredients

How to make it

  • Trim as much of the fat from the pork shoulder as possible.
  • Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.
  • Cut slits in the trimmed meat and insert sliced garlic cloves and hot peppers, if desired.
  • Rub with the herbs/spices.
  • **Fresh herbs do not work as well in this dish as dried.
  • Place pork in a heavy Dutch oven with a tight-fitting lid.
  • Add water to a level about halfway up the sides of the roast.
  • Bake, covered, for approximately 11 hours (while you sleep!).
  • Remove meat from oven.
  • Stir with meat fork to break up or shred the pork.
  • Allow to sit for any grease to rise.
  • Defat meat juices.
  • Eat, eat, eat and enjoy!
  • **It's a safe bet that the aroma will waken you during the night. That's a good time to check the water level in the pot.
