It’s another lazy Sunday. While our dinner is slow-roasting in the oven we’ll be chilling…reading, watching a movie, having a glass of sangria…that’s what’s so great about Sundays. No pressures, no work… we Love Sundays! Hope you all enjoy your Sunday too…

Spread all over pork shoulder roast (inside too if your roast is split like mine was). Place in a baking dish and pour the Pinot Grigio into the bottom of the dish – making sure not to hit the pork directly as this will remove the seasoning.

Cover with aluminum foil and place on a large cooking sheet to catch any overflow. Place in the heated oven and roast for 2 1/2 hours. Remove aluminum foil (but save it) and roast an additional 1 hour. Remove from oven; re-cover with aluminum foil and allow to rest 10 minutes. Slice and serve with the juices; squeeze fresh limes over the pork slices. This is great served with Cilantro-Lime Rice and Roasted Asparagus. Enjoy!
