Usually, when I search the internet for pork shoulder recipes, I get two sides of the spectrum: Traditional Latin American pork shoulder (pernil) or a North American-style barbecue pork shoulder recipe. Pernil is typically pork shoulder roasted with a garlic citrus rub, and while it tastes amazing (trust me, I know because my mom makes a good one) sometimes you want something new.
Enter Korean barbecue pork.

I’m here to tell you, you don’t have to among North American, pernil, or Korean-style. I decided to do a little experimenting, and I came up with this pork shoulder recipe that’s full of Asian flair. You make a simple marinade of garlic, ginger, vinegar, oil, honey, cilantro and green onions — you add that all over the pork shoulder, roast it and you’re golden. Serve it with a simple side salad, rice or stuffed in Boston lettuces leaves (which is my favorite).
If you like a little heat, feel free to add some chili powder or hot sauce to the marinade.
