    I have a 4 lb. Boston butt pork roast bone-in that I'm trying to find a recipe for. I was looking at this recipe Smothered Pork Roast over Rice ........it sounds good but it calls for a 7lb. boneless roast. I've also found this recipe on another website, deepsouthdish, and she used a 7 lb. bone-in roast so maybe the bone isn't a problem but do I need to change the cooking time. It calls for 3 hours in a 275 oven........should I cook it for a shorter amount of time?

    If anyone has any other recipes I'd be interested, maybe something you cook on the stove like a pot roast.

    That recipe looks really good. One thing you can do is to change servings size to 6. That gives the quantities of onions, spices, etc. for a 4 1/2 pound roast. Check the meat at around 2 to 2 1/2 hours. It is done when fork tender. Hope this helps.

    Thanks for that suggestion. I've been on this site for years and never knew you could change the number of servings in a recipe like that! icon_surprised.gif

    I don't have a title for my roast. I just put a little oil in a cast iron fry pan and while that's heating, I season the meat to taste with salt, pepper, and BBQ spice (someone should carry something like this near you).

    Then, cook in the cast iron on all sides just to brown, put into a Corning ware dish big enough to hold the roast, and pour in the oil from the fry pan(it helps to make a tender roast). Cover the dish with it's lid. In a pinch, I have also just sealed the fry pan with foil.

    Bake in a 250 degree F. oven until you can smell the roast, maybe 3 or 4 hours. Usually, a spoon is necessary to dish this up, as the meat will normally fall apart with a fork. Hope this helps.

    Hi, Bobby
    You might want to put your recipe in the database, as it will be lost and inaccessible in the forum (not searchable). The New Members forum has a link to a thread that helps you do that, at http://www.food.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?p=4595129
