cooking pork cushion meat?

so i'm not much of a pork-eater save for the bacon and sausage stuff, and maybe dim sum. i do, however, have this great mexican market near me that has amazing prices on basically everything, so this week i ended up getting three pounds of pork 'cushion' meat. what on earth do i do with it? pulled pork? carnitas? roast?

  1. Cushion meat comes from the pork shoulder (picnic) anterior side of the humerus bone; Sorta triangle in shape... it is lean lean and flavorful. Can be sliced into pork cutlets, cubed for stew etc. Makes pretty good pulled pork...Used to make Tasso in some areas............HTH
