Cat Cora's Hirino Psito, Slow Roasted Pork

As I promised when I made the crock pot version, I have now made the oven version and I do love this one the best!

Hirino Psito, Slow Roasted Pork
Adapted from Cat Cora


2 tablespoons Kosher Salt
1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
One 5 pound pork butt or pork shoulder
10 peeled garlic cloves
10 fresh sage leaves
1 cup all-purpose flour, approximately
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup Alma’s mustard, recipe included here ( may add fruited version)
1/2 cup brown sugar
4-5 dashes Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup Bourbon whiskey (I used Brandy)

First day
Mix the salt and pepper together and rub over all sides of the pork. Make 5 slits each on the top and bottom of the roast and insert a garlic clove and sage leaf into the slit. Wrap the roast in plastic wrap and refrigerate over night.

Next day:
preheat oven to 250
place flour on a plate and pat flour on pork, coating all sides. Dust off excess flour. Hear oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Brown pork on all sides, until golden brown, about 15 minutes.

Transfer meat to roasting pan. Combine 1/2 cup of Alma’s mustard with the brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce and bourbon. Stir until smooth.

Smear the meat with about 1/2 to 2/3 of the mixture, or enough to coat all sides of the meat.

Cover the roasting pan with foil. Roast meat for 4 hours.
Remove foil and spoon the remaining mixture over the top of the roast.

Return to oven and roast uncovered for an additional 2 hours, or until the meat is completely falling off the bone.

  1. Hello Farmgirl(?) I am also a foodie, and like the Hirino Psito)slow roasted pork recipe. But in Australia we have the metric system and i think in thr USA you have the Imperial, so I guess the 250degree you state is in Fahrenheit, is it not? Can't imagine cooking for 4hrs at 250 celsius....but then strnager things have happened....
