Slow Cooked Pulled Pork - Delicious!
I've never had a bad shoulder of pork from Tescos. I always slow roast and make pulled pork, not pork to slice. Shoulder isn't best to slice, it needs a long, slow cook. I take the sting off, rub the inside of the joint with a marinade made from treacle, minced garlic, a splash of balsamic, a teaspoon of garam masala, salt and pepper then re-roll and tie. Put in a roasting tray on top of a trivet of chopped carrots, quartered onions, 4 or 5 garlic cloves, a chopped parsnip, a sliced apple, a stock pot made with about 300ml of boiling water and a can of cider (or double up the stock cube). Tightly wrap the tin in foil and slow cook for about 5 - 6 hours on 150. Rest for about 30 minutes. Make gravy by straining the pan juices into a saucepan and thicken with a little cornflour. I never bother making crackling but if you want to, remove the skin and scrape away most of the fat, oil the skin top, add salt and cook in a baking tray on high for about 30 minutes, keep an eye on it, it will burn quickly. You'll end up with the juiciest, tastiest, pulled pork which goes great with roast dinner trimmings.

We found this to be very nice. We slow cook it for a round 5 hours and the meat is very nice. Shoulder is fatty but slow cooking renders the fat out nicely and keeps the meat moist.

Tasty but difficult to carve (badly butchered?) and also a bit chewy. It did make a reasonable roast - not much crackling though despite my efforts - but wont be good cold, will have to mince it up.
Always a winner for us
Chuck it in the slow cooker early morning on low. Lovely for pulled pork.bought for New Years day dinner and then leftovers the day after!
Perfect for pulled pork
Always good. The perfect joint for pulled pork. 8 hours in the slow cooker on low or 6 hours in the oven on 140. Shred it with a couple of forks for mountains of meat straight into buns with bbq apple sauce or stick handfuls in Mac and Cheese also make a fab chilli con carne with it. Easily does 3 family meals, total bargain especially when on offer.
Only buy if you plan to use within 48 hours.
Bought this online twice and both times had no more than 3 days shelf life. Ended up unable to use it each time. Waste of money.
Great Sunday Roast
I roasted this joint on Sunday and it was brilliant. It was one piece of very lean meat and made beautiful crackling. The next day it was used for cold meats and it was excellent for this as well. I am buying this again in the hope I get an equally good piece of meat.

Simply the most disgusting joint of meat we have encountered for a while. It carved badly and would appear to have been two different pieces of meat. By and large in edible.
Everything you could possibly wish it to be.
We thought that this was terrific value for money. It was tender, tasty, almost completely far free and the crackling crackled. It served no fewer than 12 adult portions and was as good cold as it was hot.
