    This is a really fun thing to do with a pork shoulder. The result is a buttery smooth thin slice of pork, served best on rye with dijon.
    First I take a bone in shoulder.

    I then cut out this weird little bone. It's very easy. Then it gets butterflied open to lay flat.

    Now after butterflying, I season it with white pepper, thyme, allspice, sodium nitrite, cloves, onion and garlic.

    I roll it up and tie it and season the same on the outside. Onions only go on the inside

    It then gets put in a brine for 3 days. When done, it's simmered for an hour, cooled and put in this press that I made out of maple. The cover is behind it- sorry for the blur. It sits on top of the meat like a lid on a wine press.

    I crank the wingnuts down , allowing the lid to press it and let it set in the fridge for 2 days.
    Take it out and looks like this.

    It's then sliced paper thinly and vacuum sealed in 3/4lb packs and frozen for later.
    Hope you all enjoyed this!

    :buffet: This looks really good! And pork shoulder is always reasonably priced.

    Can I use something else if I don't have a press?

    You bet!
    Put it in a pan after wrapping in saran, then put another pan on top with weight in it= like canned goods or even use C Clamps to press it down. :)

    That's what I'm talking about! Looks good. :lunch:

    This got me thinking, with the meat vacuum sealed, this would be perfect for making a sandwich using a Sous Vide machine to warm up the meat.

    Shit I think I'm going to try that

    I think next time I make it I'm going decidedly non-Danish.
    Ground Fennel, Garlic, Oregano leaves, S&P = Porketta. Now that would be killer sous vide.
