FALL APART TENDER SLOW ROAST PORK BUTT
1 (4 lb.) pork butt, roast
Whole garlic clove (optional, use as many as desired)
1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
¾ cup light brown sugar
1-1/4 cups unsweetened apple juice
½ tsp salt
½ tsp fresh ground black pepper (or taste)
Make small slits all over the roast. Then insert a whole garlic clove into each slit (this is only optional). Place the roast in a greased casserole dish with a lid. Sprinkle the roast on all sides with Worcestershire sauce.
Using hands, press the brown sugar well into the meat on all sides making certain to adhere the sugar to the meat. Pour the apple juice into the bottom of the casserole. Cover tightly.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees for 15 minutes. Place the roast in the oven and immediately reduce the temperature down to 200 degrees. Roast for about 4 hours or until the meat is falling-apart tender (cooking time will vary depending on the size of the roast). Stir the salt and black pepper into the juice (do not omit the salt!).
