Pueblo Barbecued Pork Roast
From "American Game Cooking," by John Ask and Sid Goldstein.
Heat oil in a large heavy saucepan and saute onions in it over medium
heat until soft. Add garlic, juniper berries, coriander seed and bay
leaf and saute for 2 to 3 minutes longer. Add tomatoes, water,
vinegar, honey, ground and crushed chile and salt. Simmer, covered,
30 minutes. Add chocolate and simmer, uncovered, for 20 to 30
minutes, until fairly thick.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Place roast fat side up in a roasting pan and baste generously with
the sauce. Roast for about 3 hours, basting occasionally with sauce
and pan drippings. Let roast sit for 10 minutes in a warm place
before carving. Slice and spoon additional sauce over each portion.
