Step 5 – Add the pork back to the pan.  Pour the remaining broth into the bottom of the pan.  Place the onions, carrots and potatoes on top and around the pork shoulder.  Sprinkle the Italian seasoning on top.

  • Step 6 – Place the lid on the pot and place pork roast in oven.
  • Step 7 – Cook for 60-85 minutes until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit using an instant read thermometer.  Check the roast after 60 minutes and continue to check every 5 minutes until the pork is done.  
  • Step 8 – Remove the pork from the pan.  Let rest for 10 minutes, then slice the pork.
  • Step 9 – While the pork is resting, toast all the vegetables in the sauce left in the pan to make sure that they are coated with the flavors.  
  • Step 10 – Then serve the roasting pork with the potatoes, carrots and onions from the pot and enjoy!

Recipe Tips

  • Seasoning Pork – Make sure to cover the pork shoulder with the combined seasoning. This gives the roast the best flavor. We also think its a good idea to brown the roast on both sides.
  • Cooking Pork – Cooking time will vary so make sure to use a meat thermometer to ensure the roast is cooked through.
  • Shred Roast – Shred the roast with two forks or you may need to use a sharp knife. Make sure to let the roast rest before shredding for about 15 minutes. This helps to lock in the juices.

Serving Suggestions

We love to make this roast with the carrots and potatoes. But the leftovers are great to use in soups and stews. We haven used the shredded pork for enchiladas.

My kids love when I make Homemade Mashed Potatoes with this recipe instead of roasting the potatoes.
