This recipe makes great leftovers because the fat in the roast keeps the meat tender and moist. Don't use a loin or tenderloin. They are leaner but drier too.


4pounds pork roast
2tablespoons sea or kosher salt
2tablespoons liquid smoke
1tablespoon grated ginger
2cloves garlic, crushed
2tablespoons soy sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Rub salt, liquid smoke and seasonings over pork roast. Wrap securely in aluminum foil. Roast about 3 hours or until very tender.
  2. Remove from heat, let stand for about 15 minutes. Shred, removing slabs of fat, and serve.
