Side Dishes for Roasted Pork Shoulder?
Posted 01 October 2007 - 11:34 AM
cup Roasted Garlic Rub, recipe follows
1 (6-pound) boneless pork shoulder or butt roast (not tied)
Preheat oven to 275 degrees F.
If necessary, trim fat from top of pork, leaving a 1/8-inch thick layer of fat. Spread Roasted Garlic Rub all over pork and inside any cavities, concentrating on boned side.
Put pork, fat side up, in a roasting pan and roast in middle of oven 6 to 8 hours. Transfer roast to cutting board and let stand 15 minutes. Pull shreds apart with tongs into chunks. Serve.
Roasted Garlic Rub:
2 cups roasted minced garlic
5 tablespoons salt
1/4 cup coriander seeds, ground and toasted
2 tablespoons mustard powder
4 tablespoons dried chipotle pepper, ground
2 tablespoons dried thyme
5 tablespoons dried rosemary, finely chopped
5 tablespoons lemon zest
2 1/2 teaspoons black pepper
Combine all ingredients in a food processor. Can also be mixed by hand in a bowl, but make sure to combine well.
What would be tasty side dishes that would complement this dish but not be too fussy, i.e, involve a lot of extra work? Thanks for any help.

I think rappini goes well with pork too.

1 head of Red cabbage (sliced up, remove core)
2 apples cores and sliced up
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 cup water
1 t oregano
salt and Pepper to taste
Put in a pot, bring to a boil and simmer for 20-25 minutes till tender.
Purists might start with a couple of pieces of bacon in the pot, I like the cabbage without the grease.

Shredded brussels sprouts cooked with a little butter and/or bacon would be nice too. These can be done on the stovetop in five minutes or so; the only work is the shredding, and in this form they lose a lot of that distinctive bitterness that some people don't like.
