Roast Pork With Crisp Skin

admin's picture
  Pork shoulder 3 Pound
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Five spices 1 Teaspoon
  Water 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Water 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Honey 2 Teaspoon

1. Pierce meat, not skin, in several places with a skewer or sharp knife. Rub meat with salt and Five Spices and let stand 1 hour. Meanwhile preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. Place pork in a roasting pan, meat side up. Add enough water to submerge skin. Roast 30 minutes.
3. Remove meat from oven and turn skin side up. Pierce skin in several places with a skewer. Meanwhile, heat remaining water, then stir in honey to dissolve; rub into skin.
4. Return pork to oven and roast 1 1/2 hours more. (The skin should be crisp, and a rich, reddish-brown.) Let meat cool slightly. Remove bones, leaving skin intact. Cut in 1-inch cubes, each with some skin, and serve.
