roast pork replay

A SUCCULENT ROAST with meltingly tender vegetables, slow-cooked for hours in the oven? Sounds like a delicious weekend dinner. Imagine seasoning the roast the night before, popping it in the oven in the morning, and letting it cook slowly all day long. In the afternoon, you’d add some vegetables and continue to cook the roast until dinnertime. The result: meat with an amazing fall-off-the-bone texture. While it’s easy to appreciate this simple slow-cooking technique and its delicious results, there’s another reason we love this recipe: its promise of leftovers. The shredded pork easily becomes another meal or two later in the week (see the recipes on pp. 39–41), making it both a tasty and time-saving choice for busy cooks.
