Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.

Pinot Noir, Malbec, and Sangiovese are great choices for Pork Shoulder. Pinot noir's light body is great for lean cuts, medium bodied sangiovese complement meaty sauces, stews, and other multi-ingredient dishes, and full-bodied tannic malbec pairs with fatty cuts and barbecue. You could try Stringtown Pinot Noir. Reviewers quite like it with a 4.8 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 17 dollars per bottle.

Stringtown Pinot Noir

With expressive cherry and red berry fruit on the nose and a soft, supple palate, rounded off by sweet, spicy and complex oak notes, this fruit-driven Pinot Noir features just the right balance of acidity and delicate tannins to finish clean yet vibrant.

Instructions

Preheat oven to 400 F. Pat the pork dry and season with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large ovenproof pot or Dutch oven with a lid. Brown pork on all sides, turning with tongs, 6-8 minutes per side. Transfer pork to a plate. Pour off excess fat from pot. Add onion and 1 teaspoon salt. Saut over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the onions are very soft and deep golden brown, 18-20 minutes. Add Calvados and stir to deglaze pan. Add apple, garlic and thyme and cook, stirring, 30 seconds. Return pork to pot, nestling it down in the onions. Add cider and chicken stock. Cover pot and place in oven. Reduce heat to 325 F. Braise until meat is very tender, 2 1/2 - 3 hours. Transfer pork to a cutting board and remove kitchen strings. Boil onion and apples until thickened and liquid slightly reduced, about 2 minutes. Stir in mustard. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cut pork into serving pieces and arrange on platter or individual serving plates. Spoon onion and apple confit over and around the meat.
