I had this boneless pork shoulder--it was on sale, and my husband bought a whole bunch. Not a whole lot of variety out there for braised pork shoulder recipes--I think there are about 4 recipes recycled on the whole internet, lol. I looked and didn't find any that I had all of the ingredients for, so I took some stuff out of the fridge and cupboards came up with this one. It's really easy, and delicious.
