Here are some popular ways to cook pork shoulder:

Slow-cooking: Pork shoulder is a popular choice for slow-cooking methods like roasting, braising, or smoking. Slow-cooking breaks down the meat’s connective tissue and fat, resulting in a tender and juicy texture. It’s perfect for making pulled pork sandwiches, stews, soups, or tacos.

Oven roasting: Roasting a pork shoulder in the oven is a great way to achieve a crispy, golden-brown crust and juicy, flavourful meat. Simply season the meat with salt, pepper, and your favourite herbs and spices, and roast in a preheated oven until it reaches an internal temperature of 65°C.

Barbecuing: Pork shoulder is a staple of barbecue culture, and for a good reason. Slow-cooking a pork shoulder over low heat for several hours, either on a smoker or a grill, produces tender, flavourful meat with a smoky, caramelized flavour. Serve it with your favourite barbecue sauce, coleslaw, and cornbread for a delicious meal.

Pressure cooking: Pressure cooking is a quick and easy way to cook pork shoulder to perfection. Simply add your pork shoulder to the pressure cooker with your favourite spices, broth or water, and cook for around 60 minutes, with a slow release, until it’s tender and juicy.

Here are some thoughts from chefs about pork shoulder, you’ll find some great recipes on their websites.

“Pork shoulder is the most versatile cut of pork, and my go-to choice for slow-cooking recipes. The fat and connective tissue melt away during cooking, making the meat incredibly tender and juicy.” – Jamie Oliver

“I love pork shoulder because it’s a budget-friendly cut that’s packed with flavour. Whether you’re smoking it, braising it, or roasting it, pork shoulder always delivers delicious results.” – Bobby Flay

“Pork shoulder is a blank canvas for flavour. It’s perfect for experimenting with different marinades, rubs, and spices to create your own signature dish.” – Guy Fieri

“Pork shoulder is one of the best cuts of meat for slow-cooking, and it’s perfect for making pulled pork. Just season it with salt, pepper, and your favourite spices, and let it cook low and slow until it’s fall-apart tender.” – Ina Garten

Protein Source: Pork shoulder is a rich source of high-quality protein. Protein is essential for building and repairing tissues in the body, promoting muscle growth, and supporting overall health.

Vitamins and Minerals: Pork shoulder contains various essential vitamins and minerals, including B vitamins (such as B12, niacin, and riboflavin) and minerals like zinc and phosphorus. These nutrients play vital roles in metabolism, immune function, and overall well-being.

Healthy Fats: While pork shoulder does contain fat, it provides a mix of both saturated and unsaturated fats. Moderate consumption of healthy fats is important for energy, hormone production, and the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins.

Iron Content: Pork is a good source of iron, which is highly absorbable by the body. Iron is crucial for carrying oxygen in the blood and preventing iron-deficiency anaemia.

Creatine: Pork, including shoulder cuts, contains creatine, a compound that may enhance athletic performance and contribute to muscle health.

Collagen: Pork shoulder contains collagen, which is beneficial for skin, joint, and bone health. Collagen is essential for maintaining the structural integrity of these tissues.

Paleo Diet: The paleo diet focuses on whole, unprocessed foods that our ancestors might have eaten. Pork shoulder, being a natural meat choice, aligns with the principles of this diet.

Keto Diet: The ketogenic diet is a low-carb, high-fat diet. Pork shoulder, which contains healthy fats and minimal carbohydrates, can be a suitable protein source for those following a keto lifestyle.

Low-Carb Diet: For individuals aiming to reduce their carbohydrate intake while maintaining adequate protein and healthy fats, boneless pork shoulder is a good option.

Protein-Heavy Diet: If you’re following a diet plan that emphasizes higher protein intake, such as a bodybuilding or muscle-building diet, pork shoulder can be a valuable protein source.
