4Place pork in a small roasting pan with a lid; add 1/2 cup water to pan; cover and place in 350 degrees F. oven for 2 hours, until tender. Remove pork from oven. Let pork stand, covered, for 30 minutes, moistening with pan juices before slicing or chopping. Can be made up to two days ahead. Cover and refrigerate. Reheat gently before serving.
