This pork shoulder is juicy, and cuts with a fork! It's the perfect meal to end a day at home, since the cooking time is long, but most of the time is inactive, with the roast simply in the oven.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400. In a small bowl, combine 2 tablespoons salt and remaining spices. Rub spice mixture evenly over pork roast.
  2. Bake pork, covered, at 400 degrees for one hour. Reduce heat to 325 and continue cooking for 2-3 hours additional, until internal temperature is 170.
  3. Once the pork has cooked for two hours, start on the rice. In a high-walled skillet or large pot, melt butter. Add onions and garlic and cook, stirring often, about five minutes or until onions are translucent.
  4. Add rice and beans and saute in butter for 2-3 minutes, or until liquid is absorbed. Add remaining tablespoon salt.
  5. Add water to rice mixture. (Rice should be covered by about an inch of water, so add more or less water if necessary.)
  6. Bring rice to a boil. Cover, reduce to a low simmer and cook 45 minutes or until rice and beans are completely tender.
  7. Once cooked, remove pork from oven and let rest, covered, 5-10 minutes.
  8. Slice or shred pork and serve immediately with rice.
