  • 4-5 lb pork shoulder, bone-in
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 cup chicken broth or white wine (for deglazing)


  1. Preheat your oven to 325°F (160°C). Score the skin of the pork shoulder with a sharp knife, making shallow cuts in a crosshatch pattern.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the minced garlic, chopped rosemary, thyme, olive oil, salt, pepper, and lemon juice to make the herb rub.
  3. Rub the herb mixture all over the pork shoulder, making sure to get it into the scored skin and any crevices.
  4. Place the sliced onion in the bottom of a roasting pan and place the seasoned pork shoulder on top.
  5. Roast the pork shoulder in the preheated oven for 3-4 hours, or until the internal temperature reaches 190-200°F (88-93°C) and the meat is tender and falling off the bone.
  6. Halfway through the cooking time, add the chicken broth or white wine to the roasting pan to keep the meat moist and flavorful.
  7. Once cooked, remove the pork shoulder from the oven and let it rest for 15-20 minutes before carving.
  8. Serve the roasted pork shoulder with your favorite side dishes and enjoy a delicious and comforting meal.
