Step by step recipe

So, first of all, we must deal with the meat itself. We wash it thoroughly and dry it with paper towels.

Next, take the prepared salt and seasoning and rub the meat with them. In the absence of seasoning, you can take pepper.

After that, we need to leave the meat in a cool place so that it is better pickled. It’s best to leave it to stand for a day, but if you already urgently need to prepare a delicious dish, then marinate it for 3 hours. Before sending the container with meat to the refrigerator, cover it with cling film so that it does not wind.

When the specified time is up, we can send the shovel to the oven. But first, the meat must be well coated with vegetable oil and put on the foil laid in layers.

Now the meat should be tightly wrapped in foil and baked. We turn on the oven in advance so that it warms up well. Prepare the shovel in the oven at a temperature of 200 degrees, not more than 1 hour.

Then, we take out the pork shoulder baked in the oven and open the foil. It is necessary for the meat to brown, so we leave it in the oven for another 10 minutes.

Here is the pork baked in the oven in foil and is ready, you can serve it to the table. It can be cut and served in a plate with a side dish. It is equally delicious to serve it cold, in the form of sandwiches or added to a salad. A great combination of this meat with mustard, sauce or horseradish. If you have not eaten all the cooked meat, then boldly wrap it in foil and put it in the refrigerator, its taste will not deteriorate.

The pork shoulder in the oven will definitely not be dry, due to the existing layer of fat, it turns out to be tender.

If you don’t have a pork shoulder, it can be replaced with a speck. Preparing it is also simple and it turns out really tasty.

As for seasonings, in addition to the above kebabs and peppers, mustard seeds, a variety of piquant herbs, and a mixture of seasonings for meat are wonderful.

Hot baked meat will become a satisfying and tasty decoration of the festive table. But in the cold, in the form of sandwiches, it will definitely replace your sausage both in taste and in the usefulness of the product, because you know what you eat.
