Roasting small pieces of meat.

It is a boneless pork shoulder shoulder which has been cut up. There aren't any decent butchers near where I live so when I visit the city I buy meat in bulk, portion it out and then freeze it.

Roasting small pieces of meat.

I am doing a slow roasted rubbed pork shoulder for dinner tonight but accidentally defrosted some individual half pound chunks rather than a whole piece. The recipe calls for a 4 pound shoulder to be roasted for 30 mins at 450 f and then 2/12-3 hours at 325.

How much time should I be estimating to cook my far smaller pieces of meat? If I want fall apart meat would I be better off braising it as you would do with something like carnitas?

The spinach was not in an empanada, but a cheese similar to cottage cheese sounds right. Could you please post the recipe?

Looking for a recipe for Spanish Espinacas Con Queso

My family and I spent a few weeks in Seville at the beginning of this year and ever since I have been asked to try and replicate the spinach with cheese dish served by several tapas bars there.

Unfortunately, even after some fairly extensive googling, I have not been able to find a recipe for this dish. Plenty for a mexican version which uses velveeta, but the closest I have got to the Spanish version we had was http://angieperles.blogspot.com.au/2010/03/espinacas-con-bechamel.html or http://www.directoalpaladar.com/recet... neither of which seem quite right (the cheese was more a sauce than just melted, but I don't remember it having cream in it).

If you know how to make this dish (or even know which cheese they would likely have used) I would very much appreciate hearing from you.
