  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C).
  2. Score fat layer on pork shoulder by making shallow cuts in a diamond pattern. Spread garlic, parsley, sage rosemary, and thyme over pork. Place pork in a large roasting pan, fat side up. Pour cider over pork.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 8 hours. Transfer pork to a large platter; remove and discard any large pieces of fat and skin. Pour pan drippings into a separate pot. Shred meat and return to the roasting pan.
  4. Whisk flour into water in a bowl.
  5. Bring drippings to a boil and stir in flour mixture; cook and stir until gravy is thickened, about 5 minutes. Pour gravy over pork.


  • Cook's Note:
  • I also cook this in a counter top electric roaster oven, so I usually put it on before I go to bed and take it off the heat when I wake up. It's easier to shred the meat if it's cooled a little.
