Roasted Pork Tostadas with Citrusy Cabbage Salad
This tender citrus-and-herb-roasted pork shoulder pairs with chewy hominy and crunchy radishes and cabbage—Justin Chapple likes to serve the pork salad family-style, and let guests pile their own tostadas high with their favorite toppings. The pork reheats beautifully, making this dish easy to prepare up to 2 days ahead; toss the dressing with the reheated pork and remaining salad ingredients just before serving. Substitute black beans for hominy, if desired.
Schweinebraten (German Roast Pork Shoulder)
This classic German dish is all about the contrast between savory, fork-tender meat and a crispy, tender crust of pork crackling flavored with cumin, caraway, and mustard seeds. It’s worth your time to seek out a boneless pork shoulder with a nice, even fat cap, which is key to the dish. If the only pork shoulder available with a fat cap comes with a bone, you can ask the butcher to remove it or cut it out with a boning knife at home.
