Lisa’s All-Day Sugar & Salt Pork Roast
Total TimePrep: 15 min. + marinating Cook: 6-1/4 hours
I did this in the crockpot, then finished in the oven. It was very tasty and tender.
This pulled pork may very well change my life. I could not stop eating it and even decided to forego both the bottled BBQ sauce and bun so as not to take away from the meat. One thing I will do next time though is put foil in the bottom of the roasting pan ??
Wow! My husband usually smokes pork butts on the grill but after fixing one this way, he said he may never grill one again. The sugar/salt coating really set it apart flavor wise and the slow cooking in the oven ensured the tenderness.
Due to it being 93 degrees outside today I did this in the crockpot instead of the oven. It turned out perfect & full of flavor. I didn't think it was too salty at all. I will make this again for sure because my son LOVED it!
I actually made this in the crock pot. I had a 7 lb. roast and cooked it on low for 7 hours. I transferred it to a foil-lined baking sheet and finished in a 500 degree oven as the recipe specifies. Tasty! It seemed a little salty, so I may adjust the salt down next time.
My family loved this delicious version of pulled pork! I put a bottle of good BBQ sauce alongside, but I don't think anyone used any sauce--it was that good! I would caution anyone planning to make it that you need to plan ahead as my big pork butt roast was frozen, so I had to thaw that in the fridge and then let it marinate overnight in the sugar/salt rub, then bake all day. Well worth the effort, just be sure to leave enough time. I will definitely be making this again!
