Two Amazing Dinners with minimal effort.
2 Pork Shoulders, the package from Costco is perfect.
2 Onions sliced
1 Celery Stock
Potatoes cut in quarters (Optional)
1 cup Apple Juice
1/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
4 cups of water
Rinse the meat and fit in a large braising pan. Add the vegetables along the sides. Add the liquids. Put the top on your pan. Bake in the oven for 6 hours at 350 degrees. I put this in the oven before leaving for work and have my hubby shut off the oven during his lunch. Careful, he may just have an early snack! You want to keep liquid in the pot for proper braising. Yes, you can do this in a crockpot, but I like the flavor better from the oven. Who would have thunk it.
When you remove from the oven, set aside the meat under a piece of foil to keep warm. In a frying pan, add 2 tablespoons of oil and add 1/4 cup of flour and brown the flour. Ladle the braising liquid over the golden brown flour, add salt and pepper to taste. You may want to strain the gavy f you want it to look polished. Otherwise, if you are okay with the rustic coutry look, go with it. Plate by floating the gravy on the dish, add a sliced piece of pork, alongside add the potatoes, carrots and carmelized onions.
If you are a mashed pototoes kinda person, you can go with that as well.
So very yummy.
With the remaining pork roast or left overs, pull the pork with a fork and it will shred apart. Add your favorite BBQ sauce, go easy. No too much, just enough to flavor the meat.
Serve with Coleslaw and toasted buns. Excellent.
