About this Recipe

Slow-roasted pork is one of my favorite things to cook (and eat!). There are only 2 ingredients in this recipe, but don’t let the simplicity fool you. This tender, fall-off-the-bone tender pork can be flavored after cooking and used in multiple dishes from cuisines around the world. Feeling like carnitas? Just crisp up the pork using Brava’s reheat program and serve with tortillas and salsa. Maybe southern BBQ pulled pork is more of your thing. Just add some dry rub and some sweet, spicy vinegar sauce after cooking and serve with hamburger buns. Or season before cooking with some Brava Pork Rub to give this dish a Tuscan spin. You can certainly season the pork with spices and/or seasoning blends before cooking, but I like to keep it simple and season afterwards. There’s usually some leftover and it’s fun to spice it up and use it for different dishes the next day.
