This last week I have been on a cooking binge... I guess since I didn't cook over the weekend ... I had to make up for lost time!

On monday, I found a boston butt pork roast in my freezer ( a three pound roast on sale for 99 cents per pound ).  A while ago Jim had found this wonderful recipe and we have been craving it ever since!

You make the rub... rub the roast.... cook uncovered for 1 hr... the add water and cover... cook until roast is done... mine took 2 more hours.  Remove the roast... make the gravy!

Jim asked me yesterday, as we were finishing up this delectable roast, if I had shared this recipe with my AR buddies?  I said no.... he said ... Don't you think you should?  My response is absolutely!

So here it is.... Give it a go!  You will not be dissapointed!

Boston Butt Pork Roast

A Boston Butt Pork Roast is a new favorite recipe at Cajun Cooking TV. We’ve mastered making pork roasts or beef roasts in the oven like my mom and my Maw Maw used to make. The secret: low oven temp + long number of hours = tasty tender meat. A Boston Butt Pork Roast can be used for a variety of different meals: oven roasted, slow cooked in a crock pot, smoked on a grill, and BBQ pulled pork.
For this Boston Butt pork roast recipe, we made a dry rub of several seasoning ingredients and applied to all sides of the roast.
Dry rub contains: Chili Powder, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Salt, Ground Bay Leaves, Dry Mustard, Cayenne Pepper or Tony’s Creole Seasoning, and sugar (we used raw cane sugar).

Boston Butt Pork Roast Ingredients
5 pound Boston Butt Pork Roast

1/2 cup Dry Rub (see above)
1-2 cups Water or Stock
4 tablespoons Canola oil or Olive oil
2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons softened butter

Boston Butt Pork Roast Cooking Essentials

=> Roasting Pan with cover if possible

or a disposable Aluminum pan and heavy
duty aluminum foil. => Meat Thermometer
For this Oven Roasted Boston Butt Pork Roast recipe, begin by placing the olive oil on bottom of a roasting pan or aluminum pan. We lined the pan with heavy duty aluminum foil for easy clean-up.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Place the Roast on a platter and season well on all sides with the dry seasoning mixture.
Place the roast in the oiled pan with the fat side down.
Bake uncovered for 1 hour. Meat will brown.
Then, remove from oven and add 1-2 cups water or pork stock (about 1 inch).
Lower oven temperature to 300 F. Cover tightly with roasting pan cover or heavy duty foil.
Bake for 3-4 more hours.
Remove from over and carefully open the foil. Check the temperature with a meat thermometer. Insert the thermometer into the middle of the Boston Butt Pork Roast. The temperature should be a least 160 degrees F.
To serve, pull meat apart with a serving fork.
For a thick gravy, mix 2 tablespoons flour and 2 tablespoons softened butter in a small bowl. Add to the hot meat juices and stir well until melted and well blended.
Serve meat with gravy poured over it and rice or mashed potatoes. We had baked potatoes on this particular night.
Options: add sliced sweet onions, whole garlic pods, baby carrots and chopped celery to the pan. Tasty stuff in a thicken gravy.
May 10, 2012 12:27 pm many other delectable recipes have we missed had it not been for Jim. Thinking like a lazy man I wonder if this can be seared then place in a slow cooker to a pull-able state?

bd.w . . . I think it can. I did a 3 lb. Boston butt in a slow cooker on high for 5-1/2 hrs. In fact, I read your point on how low & high temps in a slow cooker reach the same temp, and a high setting just allows it to be reached quicker. Alabama Pulled Pig was the recipe ** **, and my review is dated May 7, 2012. I had leftovers, and added BBQ sauce to the second batch of pulled pork sandwiches w/ coleslaw & fresh, sliced Jalapeno peppers. That was even better! Making this again soon for a weekend fishing outing.

This sounds really good. Thank Jim for thinking of us.

bd, Let me know if you try it in the slow cooker! Try it first this way... the rub penetrates the meat... with this method... if I can get the same taste in the slow cooker... I'm in!
May 10, 2012 2:02 pm
Conky... those sandwiches sound good!
May 10, 2012 2:04 pm
BSM, I'll tell Jim! We have always boiled our pork roast on top of the stove or slow cooked in the crock pot without a rub... This is really awesome!

Hey Terry . . . someone recently introduced that sandwich w/ toppings to me at a local deli, and it was so good I had to try to replicate it. Your pulled pork recipe looks delicious, and I’m going to give it a try too. Nice blog, thanks for sharing.

About Me
I was a working mother of 2 boys! I didn't have much time for cooking... now that the boys are grown and on their own... I have been enjoying learning and appreciating the art of cooking. I started with a day of baking with my mother in law and I was hooked! Not to mention my new stepkids... what was two... now is four! Our family is growing we now have a grandson, Damien, and one on the way! My grandson loves his visits with Gramma and Grampa...We spend quality time in the kitchen snd chronical our visits here on AR!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake! It is my therapy...I love to buy and read all types of recipe books ( call me old fashion ) but it's fun to pick out 1 recipe in a new book and try it the day I get the book!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My husband and I have great times cooking meals together! When the kids come to visit we let them request their menu of choice. Funny twist... my two boys request Jim's culinary feasts... Jim's two request Stepmom's dinner delights! Works out fine at the end of the day!
My cooking triumphs
Check out my pics, the wedding cake? It was my 1st attempt at a wedding cake... can you believe it... I still can't!
My cooking tragedies
so many... hard to pick just one! but isn't that the joy of cooking?
