Roasted Pork Shoulder with Lemon

Super easy Roasted pork shoulder with lemon.

This is another quick dish I highly recommend you trying for busy days or large parties.  I prepare roasted chicken, ribs or fish ahead whenever I have to finish cooking within a very short time. I am a big fan of my oven now.  This is a sudden idea to roast pork shoulder with lemon juice and orange juice. The taste is very unique and refreshing.

Pork shoulder (pork butt) 梅头肉 is the best part of pork in addition to ribs for me. They are well marbled with fat, but quite economic compared with beef steak.  It is the tenderest part of pork.  I love to use this part for most of the roasting recipes and  stir fries, like Char Siu and pork and pepper stir fry. Cook meats with oven is much easier for kitchen beginners comparing with classic Chinese meat stir fries.
