Instructions Checklist

  • Score fat layer on pork shoulder by making shallow cuts in a diamond pattern. Spread garlic, parsley, sage rosemary, and thyme over pork. Place pork in a large roasting pan, fat side up. Pour cider over pork.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 8 hours. Transfer pork to a large platter; remove and discard any large pieces of fat and skin. Pour pan drippings into a separate pot. Shred meat and return to the roasting pan.

  • Whisk flour into water in a bowl.

  • Bring drippings to a boil and stir in flour mixture; cook and stir until gravy is thickened, about 5 minutes. Pour gravy over pork.

Cook's Note:

I also cook this in a counter top electric roaster oven, so I usually put it on before I go to bed and take it off the heat when I wake up. It's easier to shred the meat if it's cooled a little.

I had to spend over 5 for the bottle of hard cider and ended up with flavourless meat. It was tender enough but lacked any kind of punch. I guess I'm used to a salty flavour instead of sweet for pork. Wouldn't make this again sorry. Read More

I looked forward to this as an alternative to traditional BBQ pulled pork. I followed the recipe exactly as written as I always do the first time to get a "baseline." I took it out of the oven and the flavors of the spice rub were good but nothing to get excited about. I'm very sorry to give this the lowest rating but it just wasn't worth the cost time and effort.
