Roast Pork Shoulder (Perníl)
Family Tested & Approved
picnic pork shoulder
salt (or 1 teaspoon of salt per pound of meat)
With a sharp knife, make 1-inch deep cuts into the pork.
Using a mortar and pestle crush garlic, oregano and black pepper together
Add olive oil, vinegar and salt. Mix well.
Spoon some of the garlic mixture inside the small cuts around the pork and spread remaining all over the pork.
Place pork in aluminum turkey pan (skin side up) and cover with aluminum foil tightly
Refrigerate for at least 8 hours. Turn it in the marinade
Bake in pre-heated 325°F oven for about 5 to 6 hours
Remove aluminum foil and bake at 375°F for another hour or until skin is crisp.
Closely watch this so you don’t burn the skin (chicharrone).
Pork should be well-done and tender.
