Overnight Pork Shoulder with Creamy Brussel Sprouts and Grilled Flatbread

The easiest of all pork to cook, let the oven do the work on the lowest temperature setting.  Seasoned well, the meat should pull away with a spoon when pried and not ‘bounce’.   Good the next day for pork sandwiches.


Any of the following will produce great results.  Pork shoulder, pork roast, prime rib of pork, blade cut of boston butt.  Season pork with dry rub and and fresh herbs such as rosemary and thyme.  Cut one large onion, 2 carrots and a stalk of celery and place under the pork to add moisture while cooking.  Wrap in foil and place in oven 8-12 hours at the lowest temperature setting, 180-200 degrees.  Cool and bring up to temp on stove or on grill.
