DIRECTIONS

  • Halve the garlic cloves and sage leaves. Using a paring knife, cut slits all over the pork butt, inserting a piece of garlic or a folded sage leaf into each slit. (I find it easiest to twist the knife a bit as I insert things into meat).
  • Mix together the remaining ingredients and smear all over the pork butt. Set in a dish, cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate 12 to 24 hours.
  • Unwrap the pork and let it stand about 30 minutes on the counter.
  • Place in a 4 to 5 1/2 qt slow cooker and cook for 9 hours, or until the meat is fork-tender, but not falling apart.
  • Remove from cooker with tongs or wide spatula. Let rest 10 minutes, then carve into slices for serving.
