Slow Roasted Pork

I didn’t post this recipe on the main page for a couple reasons…mainly because raw pork shoulder just ain’t that pretty…and the finished product kinda looks like a big mess in the pot! When the pork it finished, it is falling apart…to the point that you can hardly pick it up in one piece…so getting a great photo is not easy! But DAMN it’s good and it sure is worth sharing…

The recipe requires quite a few onions, so if you have onion goggles…I suggest you grab them out of the drawer…

I used red wine vinegar, but any kind will do…the vinegar cuts through the fat and richness of the pork….brightening the flavor…
