    Step 1

    Begin marinating your pork shoulder a day ahead. In a dish combine the orange juice, zest, ginger, rosemary, and olive oil. Place the pork shoulder in a shallow dish or a plastic bag and add the marinade (reserve some for a sauce if you like). Make sure the meat is well coated and refrigerate for 12-24 hours. The longer it marinates the stronger the flavors will be.

    Step 2

    Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Remove your pork shoulder from the marinade and pat dry. If you have garlic cloves to spare, use a knife to make small slits in the roast and slip a garlic clove in each slit. This will add more flavor to the pork. Surround the pork with diced carrots and onions. Season with salt and pepper. Roast for 1 1/2 hours. Turn up the oven heat to 400 degrees and cook for another 30 minutes.
