Roasted Pork Shoulder with Turmeric and Lemon Grass

When developing this recipe, we had in mind the Balinese spit-roasted pig called babi guling, which is seasoned with a long list of spices and aromatics. We start by making a paste with fresh lemon grass, shallots and turmeric, then add garam masala to layer in more complex spicing. Don’t trim the fat off the surface of the pork roast—scoring it with a knife creates a surface to which the seasoning paste can adhere. For easy cleanup, line the baking sheet with foil before setting the roast on top.
