Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 Pounds organic pork loin
  • 1 Tablespoon salt
  • 1/2 Tablespoon black pepper
  • 5 organic shallots
  • 6 organic garlic cloves
  • 1 organic apple, peeled, cored, and quartered
  • 1 Cup apple cider
  • 6 Ounces ginger beer

Directions

Season pork with salt and pepper. Using kitchen twine, tie pork at ½-inch intervals. Let it sit at room temperature for 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Place pork in a large heavy pot with a tight lid; arrange shallots, garlic, and apples around pork. Add broth, cider, and ginger beer. Bring to a boil over high heat, cover, and transfer to oven.

Braise pork until a knife slides easily through meat, 4-5 hours. Let meat cool in braising liquid.
