To make this roast pork shoulder recipe, you peel back the skin and make incisions in the meat, which allows the garlicky marinade to seep in. Then, you rub the skin with salt to draw out moisture, so it gets super crispy in the oven. The results–deliciously moist roasted pork shoulder with skin that transforms into crunchy chicharrón¡Perfecto!
