Crock Pot Pork Butt

This is one of the easiest & most flavorful meats you will ever have.  It's fall off the bone (except this boneless) tender.  You will know when it's done because your thermometer will go in like it's butter, OH MY!  We have made Spicy Pork Sandwiches (sauted in hot sauce & butter), you could serve it on chips for BBQ Nachos, you could make BBQ Potato Skins, add it to a pasta dish & use a bbq sauce, as your sauce.  Yes, we have tried that & it's fantastic!  You could do a pizza, ok so the options are endless.  So, next time you want something quick & easy, here's what you can WOW your family with.

Try to pick one with a nice layer of fat on it, like mine..YUM!  Season liberally with your favorite season, we used Masterchef Whitney Miller's blackened seasoning from her cookbook, plus salt & pepper.

Place in dutch oven & sear on each side for 3-5 mins each

When it's ready, it should look like this

Place in crock pot (fat side up) with 2 cups of apple juice, 
4 garlic cloves grated & cover.  Cook on high for 4 hrs or until so tender your thermometer goes in like it's butter :)

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 (2lb) Pork Butt, fresh from the farm
Season with salt, pepper & your favorite seasonings
2 cups apple juice
4 cloves garlic, grated

In a dutch over over medium high heat, sear on each side for 3-5 mins.  When it's slightly browned, transfer pork to the crock pot, filled with apple juice and garlic.  Turn on high & cook for 4 hours.  Shred it & enjoy.  

Makes approximately 6-8 servings
