To make 10 3-ounce servings of this slow roasted pork recipe, place all of the ingredients up to the pork in a small bowl and whisk together. Then place pork in a 2-gallon extra large re-sealable bag (or baking dish) and pour the yogurt mixture over the meat, turning to coat with marinade. Seal the bag (or cover the baking dish with plastic wrap) and refrigerate for 18 to 24 hours.

When ready to cook, preheat your oven to 300°F and line a baking sheet with foil. Place a roasting rack on top of the foil-lined sheet and coat with cooking spray. Remove pork from bag or baking dish and set on rack, skin side up. Roast until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 185 degrees, which should take between 5 ½ and 7 hours. Allow pork to rest for 30 minutes or longer after removing from oven and before slicing or breaking into large chunks.

Just before serving, make the sauce as per instructions below. Stir meat into sauce and enjoy!
