Budgets are tight these days, and making a hearty meal that doesn't cost a lot can be challenging.
This recipe turned out so well that we practically ate the WHOLE thing. Seriously. It was very moist and exactly how I'd hoped it would taste - roasted, smoky, tomato-ey (I know that's not a word) pork deliciousness.
The BEST part was that the roast cost about $8 and change. NICE!!I had some potatoes in the pantry, so I just roasted some with a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper, chopped parsley and rosemary during the last 30 minutes of cooking.

How to Make Pork Shoulder Roast with Tomatoes

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Season pork with salt and pepper. In a large Dutch oven or other heavy pot, heat 1 TBL oil over medium high heat. Add pork, fat side down, and cook, turning until browned on all sides, about 8 minutes. Transfer pork to a plate.
  3. Pour off fat, return pot to medium high and add 1 TBL oil. Add onion; cook until translucent, 5 minutes.
  4. Add garlic; cook until fragrant, 30 seconds. Add tomatoes; season with salt and pepper to taste. Add broth and vinegar and cook, stirring and scraping up browned bits. Return pork to pot with juices; sprinkle with paprika.
  5. Bring mixture to boil over high heat. Cover, transfer to oven and cook 1 hour.
  6. Remove from oven, with tongs, flip pork. Return to oven, uncovered, until tender, 1 hour, basting with pork juices every 15 minutes.
  7. During the last 30 minutes of cooking the roast, put the potatoes, which have been cut up and tossed with about 2 TBL olive oil, salt and pepper and chopped parsley and rosemary, into the oven on a sheet pan.
  8. Transfer pork to cutting board, let rest for 15 minutes. Slice pork and serve with tomatoes and sauce.
