Braised Pork Shoulder and Roasted potatoes

This recipe produces the moistest, tenderest, FLAVORLESS pork :( Thank goodness we had some barbeque sauce to eat it with. That saved the entire meal!! I braised a pork shoulder and served it with roasted potatoes. If you'd like to try the recipe you can find it here. The potatoes were very yummy and healthy for you. None of this fatty, artery clogging butter and sour cream, no we had to save room for the cookies I baked all day.

The potatoes were simply roasted with some S&P and herbs. I lined a baking sheet with foil then sprayed pam, seasoned the potatoes with garlic powder, salt, freshly cracked pepper and some fresh rosemary. Roast the potatoes cut side down. First, I put them in the oven at 325 along with the pork. When the pork was done cooking, I cranked the heat up to 450 for the last 8 minutes and they puffed up and were charred on the bottom...they tasted like french fries. I also re-sprayed them with PAM when there was about 8 minutes left because they were looking a little dry. (don't know if that's necessary next time though) After a few more minutes of roasting, they puffed up, were charred on the bottom and were delicious.
