It's almost the weekend... so time for another Millennium Road Recipe! Try some Beer Braised Pork Sliders with Fresh Salsa.... SO YUMMY!
1- 6-pound boneless pork shoulder
11 cloves garlic
2- 12-ounce bottles Mexican beer (such as Corona)
Kosher salt and black pepper
1 fresh hot red chili, halved and seeded
2 tomatoes, halved crosswise and seeded
1 small yellow onion, halved and rinsed
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons honey
Slider buns, for serving
1. Trim the excess fat off the pork, leaving a thin layer on top. Poke all over with a knife; place in a large bowl. Puree 10 of the garlic cloves with the beer in a blender. Pour over the pork, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate overnight.
2. Heat oven to 325° F. Place the pork fat-side up in a roasting pan. Add the beer marinade. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons salt and 2 teaspoons pepper all over the meat. Cover with foil and bake until fork tender, about 4 hours.
3. Meanwhile, grate the chili and the remaining garlic clove on the small holes of a box grater set over a bowl, then grate the tomatoes and onion on the large holes. Stir in the lime juice, honey, and 1 teaspoon salt. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
4. Uncover the pork. Spoon off the excess fat. Heat broiler. Broil the pork until the top is crisp, about 6 minutes. Cool for 20 minutes.
5. Shred the pork and toss with its juices. Serve with the buns and salsa and ENJOY!
