    Absolutely the most succulent pork I’ve ever made

    This is the most succulent pork I have ever made. However, instead of using olive oil for the braise I use canola or grapeseed oil so I can braise the meat at a higher temperature. You can also serve the pork at room temperature with the re-heated sauce so it can work as a late supper…thin slices with roasted vegetables.
