Simple Pork Shoulder Roast

Posted by Julia Smith on

It takes a bit of time but making a pork shoulder roast is easy and well worth the wait! Our pasture-raised heritage pork is naturally more juicy & flavourful than conventional pork, and perfect for roasting. Feel free to substitute other herbs and get creative.  


  • 4-6lb skin-on pork shoulder
  • 3  cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2  tbsp olive oil
  • 1  tbsp fresh rosemary
  • 1  tbsp fresh sage
  • 2  tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp pepper


  1. Pre-heat oven to 400° F
  2. Score the skin of the pork with a criss-cross diamond pattern every 1.5 inches
  3. Rub all over with the oil, garlic & herbs, salt & pepper
  4. Tie pork every 2 inches with butcher twine
  5. Place on baking sheet on rack in the middle of the oven
  6. Roast for 1 hour, then reduce to 350° F and continue to roast until the skin gets very crispy and pulls away from the meat easily... about 2 - 2.5hrs more.
  7. Transfer to a cutting board, tent loosely with foil and let rest for 15 minutes before slicing.
