recipe

This style of slow-cooked pork is tender and has a crispy outside from browning in its own fat. Make this a couple of hours in advance, or prepare and refrigerate the day before you plan to serve it. Martha Stewart Living, May 2008. Recipe by Lucinda Scala Quinn.

recipe

These marbled chunks of pork shoulder are first simmered to ensure they become tender, and then browned so they develop a flavorful crust. This recipe was also featured on "Mad Hungry with Lucinda Scala Quinn."
