Posting this recipe from Canadian Chef Ricardo's cookbook "Meals for Every Occassion" that was sent to me from my cookbook swap partner. Thankyou Katsen :) I haven't tried this recipe as yet, but thought it sounded interesting and the photo in the cookbbook looked amazing

I was trying to replicate a recipe that a chef I worked with used to make. I was glad to find this recipe as a guide. I followed it pretty much except that i used a few shallots instead of onions. also, in keeping with the chef's recipe, I didn't strain the gravy. I mixed it all up together, added a bit of tapioca starch (gluten free) to thicken it and served it with the pork. Delicious!! It wasn't exactly the same as the chef's but a good start. I think maybe a bay leaf and a few more herbs and spices might do it! We loved this, so easy and so tasty! Served it with corn bread, mashed potatoes and cole slaw. yum! thanks!
- 3 lbs boneless pork shoulder (1.5kg)
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 4 cups milk (1 litre)
- 2 onions, peeled
- 1 leek, white part only
- 4 garlic cloves, peeled
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- salt & pepper for seasoning
Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat your oven to 350°F / 180°C Place the oven rack in the middle position.
- In a large ovenprrof saucepan, brown the pork roast in the butter and then season with salt and pepper.
- Add the milk and bring to the boil. Add the vegetables and nutmeg.
- Cover the saucepan and transfer to the oven for 2 1/2 hours. Dont worry if the milk looks like its curdling at first; you will be straining the liquid through a sieve. (I'm guessing at this point if you dont have a saucepan that can be placed straight into the oven that you could transfer the contents to a lidded casserole or baking dish.).
- Uncover and then continue cooking until the sauce is reduced by a little less than half. About 1 1/2 hours. Turn the pork shoulder every 20 minutes.
- Remove the meat and set aside.
- Strain the braising liquid. Whisk the sauce and adjust the seasoning.
- Serve the pork on a large platter. Suggested to serve with mashed sweet potatoes to enjoy with the gravy and a green vege.
