Braising Pork Shoulder

DIRECTIONS

  1. Cube two pounds of pork shoulder, and salt well
  2. Add 3 tablespoons of neutral oil to an Abbio Sauté Pan on medium-high heat.  
  3. Add your meat to the pan, browning on all sides. You may have to brown a few batches of meat as you want to avoid crowding the pan.
  4. As the meat is browning, chop 1 large white onion and 4 cloves of garlic (optional).
  5. Once all your meat is browned, put on a plate, and add the garlic and onion to the pan. 
  6. Cook the garlic and onion for about three minutes, or until slightly brown and fragrant. 
  7. Add the pork back into the pan, and pour two cups of your braising liquid over the meat (stock, wine, sauce, salsa, etc). Your braising liquid should come about 2/3 up the pork.
  8. Bring your mixture to a boil, and immediately turn down to the heat to low.
  9. Once your mixture is simmering, partially cover and let cook for 2-3 hours or until fork tender. 
  10. Enjoy the tender meat!
