What to Make With Pork Butt?
Pork butt works well for a variety of recipes and provides a rich, juicy meat that works well on grills, in smokers, in crock pots and in the oven. Rubbing the pork in savory ground spices is an efficient way of flavoring the meat with smokiness or spice before actually cooking it. After using your rub, you can add the pork butt to your crock pot with lime juice and onions to make pulled pork carnitas. Put the pork butt in a smoker overnight for hot, smoky sandwiches. Roast the pork butt in the oven with vegetables and fresh herbs for stand-alone flavor.
What Part of the Pig is Pork Boston Butt?
Pork butt, despite its name, does not come from anywhere near the rear end of the pig, but quite the opposite. Pork butt comes from the thicker section of the shoulder where there is more fat, called marbling, running through the meat, giving it more juicy flavor.
