Ingredients
 

  • 1 Swift Meats Petite Pork Shoulder Roast
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tbsp coarse-ground black pepper divided
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 1/2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 white onion chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tsp whole peppercorns
  • 1 tsp adobo seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 3 bay leaves

Instructions
 

  • Heat your smoker to 300F degrees.
  • Season the Swift Meats Petite Pork Shoulder Roast on all sides with salt and pepper.
  • In a spray bottle, combine the soy sauce, vinegar and 1/2 cup water.
  • Place the pork on the smoker over indirect heat. Spritz with the soy-vinegar spray. Smoke for 2 hours, spraying every 30 minutes.
  • Once the pork reaches an internal temperature around 170F degrees, remove it from the smoker.
  • Let it rest on the counter for about 15 minutes. Slice it into cubes.
  • Place a large sauce pot over medium-high heat. Add 2 teaspoons oil.
  • Add half of the diced pork and brown for 5 minutes. Remove from the pot. Add 2 more teaspoons of oil and the remaining pork. Brown for 5 minutes and remove from the pot.
  • Add 2 more teaspoons of oil, along with the onion and garlic. Sauté for 3-4 minutes.
  • Add the contents of the spray bottle into the pot. Stir, scraping up the bits on the bottom of the pot.
  • Add the pork back to the pot with the 2 teaspoons of coarse-ground black pepper, whole peppercorns, adobo seasoning, ginger and 1/2 cup water. Stir to combine. Add the bay leaves, tucking them into the broth.
  • Reduce the heat to low. Cover the pot and cook for 1 hour.
  • Serve over rice.

Notes

You can finish the dish on the smoker, too, if you’d like, but you won’t absorb anymore smoke flavor, because the pot is covered.
