Do you think I could switch out the pork shoulder for Brisket here? I have some semi kosher friends that will be coming for the holiday and this could be a winner.

Truly a delectable pork roast! I used an untrimmed pork shoulder which resulted in a moist and flavorful entrée. Next time, I will use a low sodium soy sauce. Thanks!

I made this on the weekend. I cut back to soy sauce to 3/4 cup and for me, it was just way too salty.

Never mentions when to add the soy sauce, rice wine or shallots. Assume it's when you add the other liquids and aromatics. About to find out!

I do not have an oven at home :( YOu think I can still do this recipe on the stovetop??

Yum, monkeymom! made this, with some substitutions, the other night for dinner. Subbed 2 pluots for the mushrooms, threw in a few star anise, and used a little dry vermouth and madeira for the rice wine. It was a super tasty plum-sauced pork roast. Impressed the heck out of my family that I actually had a complete dinner on the table, so thank you!

mrslarkin, these variations sound so delicious! I'm not a big fan of shiitake, but have been thinking of plums + pork lately, while plums are still in season. (And I'm out of rice wine, so your sub there is so helpful.) The pluots here are generally more tart than our local plums, which to my mind make the pluots a better choice. Thanks so much for posting this. You've totally inspired me! ;o)

I made this for our Sunday supper--it was amazing, awesome leftovers, too.

It is funny, I tend to cook in phases. At any one point during the year I may only cook Chinese food, or be obsessed with Mexican, or French. This makes me want to start on an Asian food obsession. Looks really tasty.

Thanks thirschfeld! I hate to say it, but mom know best. Don't tell her I said so.
