Caramelized Orange Pork Roast

10 to 12 Serves -

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


  • 1 cup sweet white wine, like Gewurztraminer

  • 1 cup soy sauce

  • cup stone-ground honey mustard

  • 1 orange, zest and juice

  • ½ cup Sriracha chili sauce

  • ¾ cup brown sugar

  • ¼ 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.
