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.

Instructions Checklist
  • Make the pork: Preheat oven to 350°F. Toss together pork, oil, clementine juice, lime juice, salt, black pepper, and oregano in a 16- x 12-inch roasting pan. Cover tightly with aluminum foil. Roast in preheated oven until pork is tender, about 1 hour and 15 minutes. Remove and discard foil. Roast, uncovered, at 350°F until top of pork is browned, about 20 minutes. Let cool to room temperature, about 30 minutes.  

  • Make the salad: Whisk together lime juice, oil, cumin, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper in a large bowl. Using a slotted spoon, transfer pork to lime juice mixture, discarding drippings and oregano sprigs in pan. Add hominy, cabbage, cilantro, radishes, scallions, and jalapeños to pork mixture. Toss to coat; season with remaining 1 teaspoon salt and remaining 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Spoon pork mixture over tostadas; top with avocado, and garnish with cilantro, jalapeños, lime wedges, and hot sauce.
