    I need a crockpot pork butt recipe, but NOT barbecue

    Sat Mar 09, 2013 11:45 am Groupie
    I have a pork boston butt thawed that I want to cook in the crockpot today, but I do not want pulled pork or barbecue -- I'm looking for more of a pork roast/gravy kind of thing. I am not having much luck with the recipe sifter thingy, it's giving me recipes for boneless pork LOINS -- this is going to have to cook a bit longer than a loin. Can anybody hook me up with a recipe that doesn't have to marinate overnight?

    I probably would make a recipe that calls for loin with the shoulder/butt - I like that cut better, it's juicier

    Here are some I have in a cookbook

    Crock Pot Normandy Pork With Apples, Shallots & Cider
    Bavarian Pork Roast
    Pork With Lemon and Sage (Crock Pot)

    this calls for a chuck roast but I think it work very well with pork, Mississippi Roast (Crockpot)

    Here are two of my favourites (I have used different cuts of pork with success)

    Crock Pot Roast Pork
    Crockpot Pork Pot Roast

    Both make good gravy!

    I am ending up with a version of this -- but when I went to put it in the crockpot, it BARELY FIT! icon_smile.gif So, I wound up sticking it in a dutch oven in a slow oven. Good thing I plan to be home today... (supposedly doing housework).

    I bought a new larger crock pot for exactly that reason, but the new crockpot
    cooks so fast it is ridiculous. A semi-frozen roast is done in 4 hrs or less on LOW..

    If I wanted to go to work and cook something all day it would be useless.
    The new crockpots cook way too fast.

    About an hour in I checked the roast and realized (since my onions were scorching) that I had accidentally set the oven for like 375 instead of 275-300 as I had planned. I turned it down, but I think the outside might be a little crispy.

    Not having a good brain day!

    That looks GOOD! Gonna have to try that when I have a smaller roast to cook (not everyone in the house is a kraut fan, but I like it).

    very old fav that's versatile:

    cut slits here and there and add in slivers of garlic. Chop an onion and put on top. Sprinkle w/freshly ground black pepper, NO SALT, and add in a pinch of oregano. I throw in a carrot cut up too. Sometimes I splash in some white wine.

    Cook low overnight or about 8-10 hrs, never opening it up.

    Remove and let cool. The meat will fall off the bone. you NOW can add salt.

    I shred it for: carnitas, bbq pork, tacos, taquitos (!!), green chili, even cut up to throw into chili.

    The seasoning is super mild on purpose so you can use the meat in diff ways.
