Roast pork shoulder recipe

The pork recipes keep coming from some great Calgary chefs. This simple roasted pork shoulder dish, courtesy of Model Milk’s chef/owner, Justin Leboe can definitely feed a group! So, if you’re planning to have friends over sometime soon, this will be the perfect main course.

If you end up with any leftovers (doubtful, really), use the remaining meat in sandwiches the next day. I mean it is picnic season, after all!

What you’ll need…

1 3-4 lb pork shoulder

kosher salt

cracked black pepper

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup grainy mustard


Preheat oven to 275 degrees.

Combine brown sugar and grainy mustard and whisk until well combined.

Generously season pork shoulder with salt and pepper and place in roasting dish.

Brush half of the sugar and mustard glaze on to the pork shoulder and place in preheated oven.

Roast at 275 degrees for 1.5-2 hours.

Remove pork shoulder and heat oven to 375 degrees.

Brush remaining glaze on to the pork shoulder and return to the oven.

Roast at 375 degrees until caramelized, approximately 40-45 minutes.

Remove pork shoulder from oven and allow to rest (covered with aluminum foil) for at least 5 minutes.

Carve and serve warm.

Serves 4-6
