Cuisine: Simply Spiced Pork Roast

Pork is my favorite meat. I love all of its forms whether it is bacon, chops, ham, or roast. This recipe is really simple and easy to make. The brown sugar helps to candy and brown the outside of the pork, which means crispy, tasty bits of flavor in each bite. The cayenne and black pepper create a nice heated smoky flavor. The ginger adds a little extra umph to the brown sugar's sweetness. And the garlic rounds out everything.

You Will Need:
4 cloves Garlic
2 Tbsp. Brown Sugar
1 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Ground Ginger
1 tsp. Cayenne Powder
1 tsp. Black Pepper
2 lbs. Pork Shoulder

What To Do:
Poke holes all over the pork with a pairing knife, slice garlic cloves lengthwise, and place the sliced garlic inside the pork holes.

Mix brown sugar, ginger, salt, cayenne, and black pepper together. Rub this mixture all over the pork.

Let sit for no less than 30 minutes and no more than an hour.

Heat 1 Tbsp. of oil in a pan, and fry the pork on all sides until brown. This step will take about 20-30 minutes

Heat oven to 350. Place pork in a roasting pan and bake covered for about 1.5 hours. The internal temperature should read 170 degrees.

Remove from oven and keep covered. Let sit for 15 minutes so juices can settle in the pork.

Serve sliced with your favorite S Kitchen sides!
