Old-Fashioned Roast Pork
Cooking a pork roast is tricky, as the lean meat quickly dries out in the oven. Here are the tricks to keeping roast pork moist and flavorful.
Why This Recipe Works
For our Old-Fashioned Roast Pork recipe, we skipped lean loins and opted for deep-flavored and inexpensive pork shoulder or Boston butt, which we flavored with a classic roast pork spice rub. Cooking the roast in a low oven for seven hours rendered the fat and softened our roast pork’s tough connective tissue. And for easy slicing, we refrigerated the cooked roast overnight until firm.
