slow & easy pork bbq
Yield: Serves 8+
Preheat oven to 425 then 375 (Can be done in a slow cooker.)
3 to 3 ½ lb. pork butt roast
12 oz. Dole Sunshine pineapple juice
2 cups spicy tomato juice
2 cups water
2 tsp. sea salt
2 tsp. coarse ground pepper
1 tsp. dried red chili flakes (optional to reduce depending upon your palate)
In a large heavy pot, coat the pot. Add the pork, pineapple juice, tomato juice, water, salt, pepper and red chili flakes.
Cover with doubled foil and a lid. Roast in a preheated 425 oven for 2 hours. Check once or twice to see if you need to add any water. Reduce heat to 375.
Check to see if more water is needed (pork should be at least half way covered with liquid). Continue cooking another 2 ½ to 3 hours.
You’ll know it’s done when the pork is able to be shredded with a fork.
Note: If you have lots of broth remaining once the pork’s done, let the shredded meat hang out in it because it will thicken some and absorb into the meat.
Also, if you want to thicken the broth, combine one tablespoon corn starch with one tablespoon of water and blend into the broth.
