    Directions

    1. Prepare the Pork: If there is a thick layer fat on the outside side of the piece of pork shoulder, trim that off. Next, if your piece pork shoulder comes on the bone, slice the meat from the bone. You’ll likely end up with several pieces of pork that are not uniform in shape. If you have one large piece of meat that is wider than 4 inches, slice that in half. The pork shouldn’t be much thicker than 1 1/2 inches.
    2. Place all the pieces of pork into a bowl.
    3. Marinate the Pork: In a bowl, mix the soy sauce, dark soy sauce, sugar, hoisin sauce, rice cooking wine, paprika, and salt. Pour the marinade over the pork.
