End of the year is usually when parties are held with lots of people, good food, booze and plenty of fun! Are you planning to host a party soon? Then I’ve got something amazing to share with you. Aunt Ann’s Roast Pork is the bomb! A knowledgeable lady who does business from her home, she invited us over one night to sample her signature Roast Pork Shoulder. Without any expectations, we entered her premises only to be welcomed by the glorious aroma of freshly roasted pork. It being dinner time, I couldn’t stop my stomach from growling and my mouth from salivating.
The sexy piece of Roast Pork shoulder
What makes it different?
Instead of the commonly used pork belly that is often too fatty for most, Aunt Ann uses Pork Shoulder instead. Don’t be fooled, pork shoulder is actually much harder to roast compared to pork belly, because of the thickness of the lean meat within. It certainly requires some skills to ensure that the pork shoulder is roasted evenly from outside right to the deepest core.
The glorious Roast Pork Shoulder
Without further ado, we watched Aunt Ann slice the piece of meat gradually but surely, while emitting the unmistakable crisp from the superb skin. Needless to say, at that point, all of us were on the verge of going on our knees, to worship the glorious slabs of meat that were screaming out to us. I was this close to grabbing a slice from the chopping board itself! 😀
Chopping the roast pork
Look at the layers!
The trick to cutting it, according to Aunt Ann, is to only cut out the portion that you can finish at a time. This is so that the moist within the pork could be retained. You see, once the pork slices are cut, they tend to dry up when you leave them out for a period of time. So Aunt Ann only cut out a plate at a time, and replenished when it’s empty. Look at the amazing layers of the pork shoulder rolled up. Only a slight layer of fat, a golden layer of crispy skin and plenty of tender juicy meat! I swear, I thought the meat was going to be dry seeing that it’s all lean, but it’s surprisingly moist and tender. And the skin, oh the skin! I tried my best to refrain from eating too much of it but I couldn’t withstand the crunchiness and the burst of juices with each bite. I now declare that I’m hopeless when it comes to resisting Aunt Ann’s roast pork skin.
The best part is the skin!
Apart from Roast Pork, Aunt Ann also makes a mean Roast Lamb. Each piece at a minimum of 2kg, was nicely well-marinated with lots of herbs and spices, before being roasted to perfection.

The Roast lamb also came with a jug of brown sauce, which enhanced the flavour and helped make the lamb juicy and tasty.

To complete the meal, we had some baked tomatoes and tomatoes on the side. It was a wholesome meal of fiber, carbs and lots of protein! It was the first time that I actually had ‘siew yoke’ and only ‘siew yoke’ to my heart’s content, without having to remove the unsightly fatty layers that I usually do with pork belly. 😛 So good!
Baked potatoes and capsicum
The complete meal (of course I had more than one serving of the roast pork :P)
It was one of the most memorable and enjoyable meal that I’ve had in the company of warm and friendly hosts. Of course, the Roast Pork did make things a lot better too! 😉 Weighing at a minimum of 2kg, this serving of roast pork is more than enough for 10 persons in a party. Get the roast pork and a carton of beer, and you’ll have one of the most talked about party of the year! 😉
