Vepřová Pečenĕ (Czech Roast Pork)

Recipe from: Sonya
Servings: 8

Roast pork (vepřová pečenĕ) is a traditional Czech meal usually served on Sundays with dumplings, sauerkraut, and a nice Czech pilsner.

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon prepared mustard
2 tablespoons caraway seeds
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon salt
2 teaspoons ground black pepper
5 pounds pork shoulder roast
3 medium onions, chopped
½ cup beer
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons butter

In a bowl, form a paste using the vegetable oil, mustard, caraway seeds, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Rub over the pork roast, and let sit about 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Arrange the onions in the bottom of a large roasting pan. Pour in the beer. Place the roast, fat side down, on top of the onions. Cover the pan with foil. Roast 1 hour in the preheated oven. Remove foil, turn roast, and score the fat. Continue roasting 2½ hours, or to a minimum internal temperature of 160°F. Remove from heat, reserving pan juices, and let sit about 20 minutes before slicing thinly.

In a saucepan, bring the reserved pan juices to a boil. Mix in the butter and cornstarch to thicken, reduce heat, and simmer 5 to 10 minutes. Serve with the sliced pork.
