How to Cook Pork Butt

There are plenty of options that people can choose from to make a great dinner. If you are having guests you should consider making a pork butt roast to serve them. Pork is complimented  well by classic side dishes like baked potatoes, rice, green bean and more. Pork butt roast has the ability to absorb the flavor of any marinade and result in a moist meat. There are cooking methods you can use to make sure the pork stays moist. Part of the pork roast remaining moist lies in the way you handle it after it is cooked. Place the pork roast to rest after it is done. This allows it to cool and the juices to redistribute themselves throughout the meat before it is cut and served. Here is how you can cook pork cut roast.

Items You Will Need:

  • Injector (1)
  • Roaster Pan (1)
  • Parsley (2 tablespoon)

  • Pork Butt Roast
  • Beer or Wine Cooler (1)
  • Garlic (chopped or minced, 2 tablespoons)
  • Teriyaki Sauce ( ¼ cup)
  • Lime Juice ( ¼ cup)
  • Fruit Preserves (pineapple, orange, peach, etc.)

Step 1

Combine the wine cooler (or beer), teriyaki sauce, lime juice in a small bowl. Use the meat injector to aspirate some of the liquid into the vial. Inject the mix into the pork butt roast. You can do this the night priorand allow it to marinade the inside of the roast. This would give the flavors time to settle in. If you cannot do this overnight then try to at least do this several hours in advance. It makes a difference in terms of what your meat tastes like.

Step 2

Put the pork butt into a tin roaster pan. Pour the left over beer (or wine cooler) on top the roast.

Step 3

Add the onion, parsley and garlic on top of the roast. Preheat the oven to 375. Cover the roast with some aluminum foil and allow it to back for 1 ½  up to 2 hours.

Step 4

Take the pork roast out of the oven. Baste the juices that are present at the bottom of the pan. This helps to moisturize the meat further. Add the fruit preserves. Use a spoon to apply the fruit preserves in a medium layer onto the top surface of the pork butt. Now is the time to apply any garnishes. Peppers, carrots, potatoes, or pineapple rings would make for nice enhancements. Put them on and put the pork butt back into your oven.

Step 5

Cook the pork butt an additional 1 ½ to 2 hours. About 15 minutes before the roast is finished, increase the temperature on the oven to 425 degrees. Remove the foil or top and baste the pork roast. Let 15 minutes pass, slice. Take the roast out. Allow it to rest for 20 minutes. Cut and serve. Enjoy while hot.
