Cooking a big pork shoulder does not have to be for the professionals, this recipe is for all cooking levels. PERi-PERi is there to help you through it!
1 1/4 cup PERi-PERi sauce
3 lbs pork shoulder
2 tbsps olive oil
1 1/2 cups water
1 sprig of thyme
2 lbs potatoes
4 spring onions
Small bunch of fresh dill
1Preheat oven to 425℉. Place shopped carrots and onion into a deep oven tray with the thyme. Place pork on top of vegetables, drizzle with oil all over, season pork to liking and message with hands.
2Add the water to the tray and cover tightly with cooking foil. Place in the oven for 30 minutes then turn down temperature to 250℉. Continue to cook for 9.5 hours (or an entire Netflix series). Remove from oven, rest for 20 minutes
3Towards the end of the pork cooking time, put new potatoes in a pot and cover with salted cold water, bring to the boil and cook until tender (the old 'insert a fork' test will tell you)
4When potatoes are cooked, drain then mix with olive oil, PERi-PERi sauce, spring onion and dill
5After resting the pork, pull with two forks and mix in PERi-PERi sauce. Serve with potato salad. Tuck in, you've earned it!
