  • 1 pound boneless pork shoulder (Boston butt), trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped onion
  • 5 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 cup unsalted chicken stock (such as Swanson)

  • 4 cups hot cooked long-grain white rice
  • 2 tablespoons diagonally sliced green onions

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 325°.
  2. 2. Peel and section orange over a bowl; squeeze membranes to extract juice. Set sections aside; reserve juice.
  3. 3. Heat a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Sprinkle pork evenly with salt. Add pork to pan; sauté 5 minutes, turning to brown on all sides. Add 1/2 cup chopped onion to pan; sauté 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add garlic; sauté 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in orange sections, orange juice, stock, and next 4 ingredients (through sambal). Cover; bake at 325° for 1 hour. Stir in cranberries. Bake, covered, at 325° for an additional 30 minutes or until pork is fork-tender. Place 1 cup rice in each of 4 bowls; top each serving with about 3/4 cup pork mixture. Sprinkle each serving with 1 1/2 teaspoons green onions.
