Ingredients

  • 1 boneless pork shoulder butt roast (3 to 4 pounds)
  • 4 teaspoons liquid smoke
  • 4 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 2 unpeeled ripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup water

Directions

  1. Place the roast on a 22x18-in. piece of heavy-duty foil; sprinkle with liquid smoke and soy sauce. Wash bananas and place at the base of each side of roast. Pull sides of foil up round meat; add water. Seal foil tightly; wrap again with another large piece of foil. Place in a shallow baking pan; refrigerate overnight, turning several times.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°. Place foil-wrapped meat in a roasting pan; bake for 1 hour. Reduce heat to 325°; continue baking for 3-1/2 hours. Drain; discard bananas and liquid. Shred meat with a fork. Freeze option: Freeze cooled meat with some of the juices in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through in a saucepan, stirring occasionally and adding a little water if necessary.
