Source: Everyday Food, December 2011


  • 3 pounds boneless pork shoulder roast, tied and patted dry
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 pints cherry tomatoes
  • 2 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
  • 4 teaspoons smoked paprika (or hot or sweet Hungarian paprika)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Season pork with salt and pepper. In a large Dutch oven or other heavy pot, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high. Add pork, fat side down, and cook, turning until browned on all sides, 8 minutes. Transfer pork to a plate. Pour off fat, return pot to medium-high, and add remaining tablespoon oil. Add onion; cook until translucent, 5 minutes. Add garlic; cook until fragrant, 30 seconds. Add tomatoes; season with salt and pepper. Add broth and vinegar and cook, stirring and scraping up browned bits. Return pork to pot with juices; sprinkle with paprika.

  2. Bring mixture to a boil over high. Cover, transfer to oven, and cook 1 hour. Remove from oven; with tongs, flip pork. Return to oven and cook, uncovered, until tender, 1 hour, basting pork with juices every 15 minutes. Transfer pork to a cutting board; let rest 15 minutes. Slice pork and serve with sauce.

    I have made this a number of times and it is spot on! Easy, tender, and tasty. Great for company. Serve with couscous, side salad, and warm buttered bread.
