"Just created this tonight and it's definitely a keeper! The Hubby and I can't wait to try it again, next time on the grill; the smoky flavors imparted by cooking over the coals will complement the sauce nicely. It's a lovely way to serve an otherwise inexpensive piece of meat."

1 (3 pound)
bone-in pork shoulder roast
kosher salt and ground black pepper to taste
pomegranates with the seeds removed
I was working nights for the Christmas holiday and thought I would try this one. I changed several things about the recipe. The pomagrantes here didn't look so (going out of season) good so I used juice. I also put every thing in the crock pot and cooked it on low for 10 hours. Oh my goodness was it good and tender and my picky family truely enjoyed it.
Okay, so I had a few problems with this. First off, I wasn't too happy with the pomegranate flavor. If you do what the recipe says and do the pomegranate sauce yourself, it is a lot of work for a little bit of flavor. Secondly, I'm not sure if i liked the choice of cut for the pork. Yes, it was VERY tender, but it for me personally, id prefer something boneless and with less fat. Would I make this in the future? yes, probably. But i would probably use boneless pork loin and use pomegranate juice instead.
I made this for a backyard party and everyone loved it. I usually make my own changes, but this time I did it as written. What a great flavor for pork! Not one bite legt, even though I also cooked 15 New York steaks as well!
The first time I made this, it was a hit at the corporate potluck. Last time, I got good reviews at my family party. The sauce reminds me of a sweet and spicy (cinnamon) teriyake sauce.
This was pretty good. I think it was the way I cooked it that left it lacking. I cooked it in my crock pot and I used Pomegranate juice cocktail. I should have used straight Pomegranate juice, maybe it would have tasted better. I will try this again to see if I have more success.
Absolutely loved this dish! It was wonderful! Used POM pomegranate juice which makes things a lot less messy. Was a big hit!
Easy enough and love the flavor of the glaze. I added a little rosemary to the garlic and seasonings, and mixed it all with a little oil, then cut slits in the roast, packing them with the mixture. Substituted apple cider vinegar and honey in the glaze. Smelled great in the oven and tasted great too.
Easy, looks great, but for my roast the flavor of the pomegranate did not really sink in very far. Still tasty, but I whish more of the pomegranate taste got further in the roast.
