Juicy Pork Roast Recipe

Tired of beef pot roast? Try it with pork! This pork roast recipe is relatively easier to make than its beef counterpart. All you need to prepare are garlic, some chicken broth, and pork shoulders. For this recipe, we recommend using pork shoulders because it is perfect for roasting. Ask your butcher about pork shoulders and they’ll tell you that pork shoulders are relatively tough. This is because it has a nice proportion of fat and muscle which is good for great slow-cooked dishes.

To have this absolutely delicious pork roast recipe, you will need an oven. Of course, roasting the pork alone will not result in a completely awesome meal. Apply generous amounts of garlic powder to your pork and let the chicken broth do its wonders. If you want the dish to be spicy, sprinkle some chili powder or brush some chili sauce. We recommend using Thai chilies and jalapeno peppers to have that explosive taste.

Recipe Notes

It is important for the meat to rest first after roasting because it will need to absorb the moisture back to the meat fibers. That way, it will stay juicy and moist even after being cooked in the oven.

Commonly Asked Questions

Is it okay to use other pork cuts?

Yes, you can use other pork cuts such as pork belly or pork neck. However, we highly recommend using pork shoulder because it has layered fats that will melt when it undergoes slow cooking. Meaning, it will produce a finer flavor. But, if you want to use pork shoulder, the next best thing that we will recommend is the pork belly.

Can I keep the skin on the pork shoulder?

Yes, you can keep the skin if you prefer. This will add to the texture of the pork after being roasted in the microwave. It can also help in retaining flavor and moisture especially when you are going to cook the pork twice, such as in the case of this recipe. 



This juicy pork roast will be the solution to your problem of what to serve your guests for parties and celebrations. It's easy to make and will only require a few hours of your time. Serve this with bread or rice and a nice bottle of wine.
