Shoulder pork help

si50, Oct 5, 12:17am
I'm looking at this recipe which needs shoulder pork cut into small pieces.
So do I just cut up a shoulder roast? Can't find any other 'shoulder pork' in the supermarket.

If it was me, I would just used the diced pork available at the supermarket. I wouldn't waste a pork roast for a casseroley type dish. But that's just me.

Hell I wouldn't. I'd buy "hangi pork" and use that. Far cheaper, why waste a decent roast?

I buy one large pork roast when on special, cut a small roast off it to suit three, cut some pork steaks off and dice the rest for stirfry. It's just pork, especially the shoulder, nothing special about it.

You know what? If it were me, I'd use that recipe, but keep the shoulder whole, in a piece, and cook it in a casserole for a bit longer. The reason she probably specified shoulder is that it has more fat on it than most other pork cuts, and will be unctuous and not "dry" tasting.

I buy small pork shoulder roasts and dice them up for pork & beans, pork & kumara curry etc. shoulders have more fat so stay moist as stated in above post, they usually cost $10 - $15 on special for 1 to 1.5kg
