Ingredients

  • 1.5kg pork shoulder
  • 1 litre chicken stock
  • For the spice rub

  • 50g table salt
  • 75g muscovado sugar
  • 1 tbsp dried sage
  • 1 tbsp English mustard powder
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tbsp cracked black pepper
  • 1 tbsp cumin seeds, toasted
  • 3 star anise, toasted and crushed
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

Method

1

Combine all of the dried mix.

 

2

Lay the pork shoulder in a roasting dish. With a sharp knife, score 10 or so deep holes into the flesh.

3

Rub the spice mix all over and into the grooves, making sure the mix is full rubbed in.

4

Wrap the joint completely in cling film and place in the fridge overnight.

5

The following day, remove the pork from the fridge and take off the cling film. Place into a casserole dish and pour in the chicken stock.

6

Cover with a lid and place into a pre-heated oven at 150C for 5-6 hours.

7

Two hours before end of cooking time, remove the lid. This will give you a lovely crispy crust.

8

Once cooked, remove from the oven and leave to rest for half hour or so before pulling the meat.
