Worried about gamey taste in pork roast

eldergourmet | Dec 15, 2007 04:01 PM

I want to make a pork roast using a fatty piece of meat like the shoulder, the type that needs slow cooking for a long time until it falls apart. My wife tells me that this cut of pork can sometimes be gamey, and wants me to use a different cut like the loin, which is really a very different kind of dish. To allay her concern, is there something I can do to prevent the meat from acquiring a gamey taste, for instance, marinating it in white vinegar before roasting? If so, how much vinegar and for how long?
