Fragrant juniper berries and bay leaves give this big cut of meat incredible flavor and crispy skin. Slow Roasted Pork Shoulder & Cinnamon Apples is a perfect recipe for cooking for a crowd. It requires hardly any work upfront and your house smells amazing all day while it roasts away!
I’ve cooked pork SO many ways and I always come back to this recipe. The simplicity and results are way beyond any other recipe I have found so far. Simply toss juniper berries, bay leaves, salt and pepper and a spice grinder, then rub it all over the pork and roast it for 7 hours. That is it! You can use your Dutch oven without the lid as a roasting pan.
Once the pork cools, run your knife under the skin and remove it. Chop it up, shred the pork with a fork and sprinkle the skin on top. Scatter the roasted cinnamon apples over the platter for a beautiful dinner presentation.
