This was really yummy! This recipe was the first time I had made pork shoulder, and I was so very pleasantly surprised by both how easy it was and how tasty it was. I highly recommend this recipe! I didn't actually make it into a sandwich; instead, I ate it with various cooked veggies and also added it to non-meat homemade soups (extremely good in particular with a tomato, red lentil and chickpea soup, found at http://www.recipes4us.co.uk/Soups/Tomato%20and%20Lentil%20Soup%20Veg%20HT%20SP%20Tunisia%2050mins.htm). I am looking forward to making it again soon!
