Pork shoulder is roasted and basted with a homemade pomegranate sauce made with pomegranate, balsamic vinegar, sugar and ground cinnamon. It's a delicious way to serve roast pork.
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. - 24 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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! - 18 Aug 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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. - 02 Jan 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
