Nothing says welcome home like the smells of a slow cooker meal on a beautiful fall day. We’ve got a great recipe for that heritage pork shoulder in this month’s share that’ll help ease the transition into cooler weather.
1 cup plus 2 Tbsp. soy sauce, divided
¼ cup granulated sugar
3 Tbsp. chopped garlic
¼ cup chopped scallions
2 pounds Kettle Club pork shoulder
1 bunch asparagus, halved
6 Yukon potatoes, diced
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
½ cup honey
In a large bowl, combine one cup of the soy sauce with the sugar, garlic, and scallions, stirring until mixed.
Place the pork in the marinade and toss to coat evenly. Marinate for one hour.
In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, honey, and remaining soy sauce, stirring until smooth.
Place the pork and chopped vegetables in the slow cooker and spoon the honey glaze over the top of the, making sure to fill the cracks and crevices on top.
Cook on low heat for 3-4 hours. Once the pork is cooked through and tender, remove the vegetables and pork from the tray, making sure to save all the juices.
Slice the pork into ½-inch slices, and plate with the roasted vegetables. Spoon the reserved pan juices on top of the pork, and enjoy!
