Roast Pork Shoulder

Roast-pork-with-sauceThis from Jamie Oliver (a distant relation)! who gets more paleo every day….

Serves 6 – 8

4.5lbs bone-in pork shoulder , skin on (crackling yum)

2 red onions halved

2 carrots peeled and halved lengthways

2 sticks of celery chopped in half

1 garlic bulb broken into cloves skin on

1 branch of bay leaves (?!)

1 swig of sherry (and one for the cook – might change it to red wine)

1 pt of water or stock

How to do it:

Turn it up high ( the oven) 220ºC /gas mark 7.

Score the pork skin and fat with cuts 1cm (1/2 inch) apart.  Rub in some sea salt season the underside with salt and pepper.  Place in the tray and cook for 30 mins or until the skin starts to turn into crackling.  Reduce the heat to 180ºC/gas mark 4

Cook for another hour, remove the pork from the oven and leave to rest on a board.  Add the vegetables and bay leaves to the tray, stirring into the fat.  Place the pork on top, baste with fat and return to the oven for one hour or until tender.  If not done, cook for another 30 mins and check again.

When cooked, lift out the pork, cover with tin foil and leave to rest.

Meanwhile spoon any fat out of the tray, mash the vegetables and add sherry, scraping the bottom of the tray.  Add the stock, boil then simmer for  few minutes til the gravy looks like gravy should!  Strain and serve with the pork.


About Paleo Works

Paleo Works Have you ever wondered how you arrived at “being overweight” and thought how difficult it is to get rid of and keep off those excess pounds? Hi, I’m Katie and together with Mike my husband, we are Paleo Works. As a busy working mum of four, I often watched others embark on weight loss progammes only to return to their start weight (and then some) shortly after reaching their target. Why was this happening? Conventional dietary wisdom would have us believe that it’s YOU who has failed. But Mike and I thought different. We felt that there had to be something wrong with that conventional dietary wisdom after all we can’t all be hopeless? So we studied intensely, sought out advice and read avidly. We questioned robustly and talked with many on various 'dieting' regimes. What we found was radical, our story has to be told, our knowledge has to be shared. So If you are ready to stop blaming your self for being overweight and ready to change your approach to weight loss then contact us and let’s get started!
