Roasted pork shoulder- 3/14/11

Roasted pork shoulder is so easy to make!  It is very simple but yet so tasty and the meat will melt in your mouth with barely any or very little preparation.  This is a must try! The pork Shoulder or pork butt is a flavorful piece of meat, but tends to be tough so you have to cook it a while in the oven so it becomes tender.

I served the roasted pork with garlic spaghetti and green sautéed green bean in butter and garlic.

The meat is so tender and the sauce is also great!
