Kanchi's Goan Pork Roast

Total Time

This is a fantastic recipe my mum's cook Kanchi gave me. She is from Nepal and has lived with us at my Mum's place for over 23 years. A great lady who took care of us as mum worked full time. I do not cook pork too much but this recipe is one of the few exceptions. Kanchi got this recipe from a lady named Philo in Goa who is also an excellent cook.

Dec 29 2006 : I use this recipe often, but bake it for several hours as described in Mean Chef's pulled pork recipe. I don't let it get to the shredded pork stage. As soon as I think it is easy to slice and tender, I remove from oven. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
