This recipe incorporates all the flavours of a charcuterie platter into a single dish. It can be difficult to cut this tender roast into thin slices, so separate the meat into chunks before serving. It will be much easier—and just as tasty! For a hearty meal, serve with mashed potatoes and our Quick Braised Red Cabbage.
