Ingredients

Directions

  1. About an hour before you’re ready to prepare this recipe, remove pork shoulder from refrigerator and bring to room temperature.
  2. Place rack in middle position of oven and preheat to 325°F. Place salt, garlic powder, pepper, thyme and garlic into small bowl. Drizzle in olive oil and mix together to form a paste. Rub paste over pork shoulder.

  4. Nestle vegetables, apple and bay leaf around the pork and pour the apple cider over the roast. Cover and place in oven. Roast for 2 1/2 hours, ladling pan juices over the roast and vegetables after every hour of cooking, and leave uncovered for the final 30 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and rest for 5 minutes before transferring to cutting board. Discard bay leaves and transfer vegetables to a service platter. Trim butcher’s string off roast and slice to desired thickness. Serve the meal family style or assemble on individual dinner plates. Garnish with a sprinkling of microgreens and gravy. Serve immediately.

Here’s what you can expect when you prepare this PORK ROAST WITH VEGETABLES:

PORK SHOULDER

Pork Roast With Vegetables

I always call my butcher in advance to trim and truss a choice cut of meat for this recipe. He removes most of the fat, but more importantly, he’s able to select a cut of meat closest to the four-pound mark. Pork shoulder recipes always promise tender morsels of meat and this one sure does deliver. For best results, always allow your roast to come to room temperature before you begin.

THE RUB & VEGETABLES

Pork Roast With Vegetables

There’s a memorable flavour profile this rub brings out in both the roast and the vegetables. Rub your roast twenty-four hours in advance for even more delicious taste.

We make this recipe a lot but always consider which vegetables to use. Try it with carrots, parsnips, and potatoes, but then feel free to experiment with squash, cabbage, turnips and yellow beets. The combinations are endless but the results always impress.

IT ALL GOES TO POT

Pork Roast With Vegetables

Using a covered roasting pot, often called a Dutch oven, is essential for the success of this recipe. I use a heavy-gauged, flat-bottomed pot and love the way the uniform bottom prevents any hot spots, cooking evenly throughout. I’ve also listed two Dutch oven options for you in the Amazon links below.

LEFTOVERS

In the rare case when you do have leftovers, try putting thin slices of pork onto your favourite healthy bread, then topping with horseradish or robust mustard. Fabulous!

In many ways, this PORK ROAST WITH VEGETABLES is a complete meal but there are a few additional things that go with it as well. Serve it with our CREAMY COLESLAW or our MASHED SWEET POTATOES. You can also echo the flavour of the apple used in this recipe by serving it with our simple APPLE SAUCE. Talk about a meal of comfort food – there it is!

An easy-to-prepare meal that receives top marks for both taste and presentation, this PORK ROAST WITH VEGETABLES is fabulous each and every time. Enjoy!
