I used applesauce with 1/4 of water ( no apple juice in house) and Emeril' essence for the creole seasoning. I followed the recipe with those exception. Exceptional...pork is tender and very flavorful.
This recipe was superb!! My boyfriend's favorite food is pulled pork & he said this was better than anything he's ever had! It was not only delicious but easy if you have the time. Instead of apple juice I used 1/4c apple cider vinegar & 1/4c water. This will be a recipe that we use often! Thanks DoryJean54 for sharing!!
I wasnt planning on even writting a review, but I had too. I love making slow cooking recipes and this one rocked! I find the hardest thing to pinpoint is a method for the actual cooking times... and this one worked out well.. the hour at a high temp and then 5 hours at the low temp for a 3.55 pound bone in pork shoulder. I didnt trim off the fat on top, but it was really easy to just take it off after. I also added some pineapple juice and a lot more salt and mesquite seasoning.
This was so easy and has great flavors. I let mine cook for the one hour plus five hours in a cast iron pot. I was leery of the worcestershire sauce but it came out great. The meat was melt in your mouth good. Served with coleslaw and Schlotzsky's Style Sourdough Batter Rolls.
You can not go wrong with this recipe! The entire family gave this one a thumbs up. The spices are a perfect compliment to the pork. I cooked mine all day in the crockpot, and it fell apart when I tried to take it out. This is my permanent pork butt recipe!
Super easy recipe. The meat was so tender, juicy, and flavorful. I didn't put the roast in the oven first. I put it in the crock pot for about 4 hours. Perfect!! Will be making this again! Thank you for sharing!
This is a very easy recipe to make. The meat was juicy, tender and very tasty. We cooked ours in the crock pot for 3 hours on high and 3 more hours on low. We then pulled the meat and put it back in the broth. I am going to try this recipe on another roast and put it in the smoker for 2 or 3 hours and the finish it in the crock pot.
Yummy pork recipe! I made it exactly as written except, like a previous reviewer, I finished it in the crockpot. I also added some chopped onion. Loved the sweet flavors and the cajun spices together. Thanx for a great recipe that the whole family enjoyed. I'll make this again.
My family thought that this was great! I am not a pork eater so I had never prepared pork butt before. I will be making this again. Thanks for posting!
