  • 1.2-1.5kg pork shoulder, boned and rolled, skin scored
  • For the glaze
  • :
  • 250g pack sweet white miso paste* 50ml soy sauce
  • 100g runny honey
  • 75ml mirin (Japanese rice wine)


  • To make the glaze, mix all the ingredients together in a bowl until well combined. This will make more than you need but it keeps for ages in the fridge and is great with chicken, fish or added to vegetables as a stir-fry sauce.

  • Heat the oven to 130C, gas ½. Set the pork on a rack over a roasting tin (it’s a good idea to line it with foil) and brush the meat only, not the skin, with 1-2tbsp of glaze. Cook slowly, covered loosely with foil, for 6 hours, until super tender. Glaze the meat every hour or so.

  • When you are ready to serve, turn the oven up to 200C, gas 6. Blast the pork until it starts to crackle, then brush the crackling and the meat with a little glaze before serving. Delicious with mash or rice and try some cavolo nero or greens stir-fried in the miso glaze.
