Caramelized Orange Pork Roast


Raising the oven temperature during the last half hour of roasting ensures a crisp, caramelized crust.

  • Yield: Serves 10-12

  • 1 cup sweet white wine, like Gewurztraminer
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup stone-ground honey mustard
  • 1 orange, zest and juice
  • 1/2 cup Sriracha chili sauce
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 6 to 8 pound pork shoulder


  1. Whisk together all ingredients inside a large oval Dutch oven. Place in pork and coat with sauce, turning several times while it marinates for at least 4 hours.

  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Place covered pot in oven and cook for 4 hours. Raise heat to 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes. Remove cover and cook another 30 minutes, basting a couple of times. Shred the meat in the liquid and serve.

    This is the best pork recipe ever. My husband loves it. Next time though, I will use a little less of the chili sauce.

    I made this for my daughters birthday. Everyone loved it. Both my daughters and my neighbor wanted the recipe. Having the left overs on toasted buns tonight. Definately will make this one again. It's a keeper, as my husband said.

    This is THE best pork ever. I made it last night and we had it leftover tonight on rolls. Please don't miss the chance to try this one. It is soooo easy also.
