Slow-roasted pork shoulder with coffee and brown sugar rub

porkshoulder

This is basically a gratuitous photo of a seven-hour, slow-roasted pork shoulder that was slathered in mustard, and then covered in a dry rub consisting of coffee grinds, brown sugar, cayenne, red pepper flakes, garlic, onion, and love… My boyfriend made this for dinner tonight, and I can’t get over how smoky and sweet, and perfectly tender this pork roast turned out. It reminded me a bit of Chinese BBQ pork (a.k.a char siu). Oh yea, and garlicky mashed potatoes were included, but not pictured here.
