Wendell's Honey-Glazed Pork

Wendell actually made this awhile back, but I got all caught up with the egg thing and the sukiyaki/shabu shabu thing, and I never did post this recipe. 

It was ono . . .  but to be honest . . . not too tender. Maybe a fattier cut of pork might work better.  The recipe mentions asparagus and potatoes, and Wendell did make them, but they're in another pan.


The recipe is from here


1 cup plus 2 Tbsp. soy sauce, divided
¼ cup granulated sugar
3 Tbsp. chopped garlic
¼ cup chopped scallions
2–3 pounds boneless, skin-on pork shoulder
1 bunch asparagus, halved
6 Yukon potatoes, diced
2 Tbsp. olive oil
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
½ cup honey


Preheat the oven to 275ºF.
In a large bowl, combine one cup of the soy sauce with the sugar, garlic, and scallions, stirring until mixed.
Score the skin of the pork by slicing a crosshatch pattern through the skin down to the meat. This will help excess fat render out and allow more of the marinade to soak in. 
Place the pork in the marinade and toss to coat evenly. Marinate for one hour.
On a baking sheet, place the asparagus halves to the right and diced potatoes to the left. Toss the vegetables with the oil, salt, and pepper. Place the marinated pork in the middle of the baking sheet. Bake one to one and a half hours, depending on the weight of the pork.
Raise the heat of the oven to 500ºF.
In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, honey, and remaining soy sauce, stirring until smooth.
Spoon the honey glaze over the top of the pork, making sure to fill the cracks and crevices on top. Bake for 20 minutes until sugar is dark brown and caramelized, and the top of the pork is crispy. 
Remove the vegetables and pork from the tray, making sure to save all the juices.
Slice the pork into ½-inch slices, and plate with the roasted vegetables. Spoon the reserved pan juices on top of the pork, and enjoy!

Please ask Wendell if he caters. Or, it could be that you have a magic camera that makes EVERYTHING he makes look too delicious! I was going to cook chicken with cream of mushroom soup tonight for dinner, but now I want to eat pork instead!
