Slow-Cooked Pork Shoulder Roast recipe

Sunday lunch can seem dauntingly expensive if you’re trying to feed a crowd. But slow-cooked pork shoulder is one of the most satisfying roasts (so tender) and, relatively, very cheap. It also looks magnificent. You can vary the stuffing by using dried fruit instead of mushrooms, or add grated Parmesan or wilted spinach.
