How long does it take to cook a 7-pound pork shoulder?

Answer

Cooking a 7-pound pork shoulder in the oven takes about four to five hours, and cooking it in a slow cooker takes around 8 to 10 hours. Martha Stewart holds that a pork shoulder should be cooked until the meat is very tender.

Martha Stewart states that, to roast a pork shoulder, the meat should be seasoned with salt and pepper and placed fat-side up in a roasting pan with 1/2 cup water. Place it in a 450 degree oven for 45 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees, cover the pan and allow the meat to cook for an additional four hours or until tender.

Four hours in an oven is sufficient cooking time for a 7-lb. shoulder. Pork shoulder is a tasty cut, threaded with fat, but it is tough and responds best to long, slow baking or braising
