Soy-Da Glazed Pulled Pork
- 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon crushed black pepper
- 1 bone-in pork shoulder (about 5 pounds), fat cap scored
- Soy-Da Glaze:
- 2 cups orange soda
- 1/3 cup low-sodium soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
- 2 cloves garlic, zested
For the pork: Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
Rub the brown sugar, salt and pepper all over the pork. Place on a baking sheet, cover with a layer of parchment and then seal over the top with aluminum foil. Roast for 3 hours.
Remove the pork from the oven, uncover and drain any liquid fat. Brush the soy-da glaze all over the pork and continue to roast, re-glazing every 30 minutes, until the pork is well browned, fork-tender and the meat pulls away from the bone (and registers 200 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer), 1 to 2 more hours. Transfer the pork to a large dish and let rest 20 minutes before pulling.
For even more crispiness, pull the meat, mix with the remaining glaze and broil on a baking sheet until extra crispy, 3 to 5 minutes!
