This deliciousness will be used mostly for pulled pork sandwiches.
Like any family, mine likes to eat pulled pork in different ways. Some likes the pork seasoned just as it comes out of the oven; others like to add BBQ sauce, or hot sauce. Either way, this pulled pork is off the hook!
Approximate Preparation Time: Is important to season the pork the day before.
Approximate Cooking time: 7-8 hours (remember, it cooks at a low temperature for a long time)
Approximate Total Cost: $25.00 (or $1.67/serving)
Difficulty Level: X Easy
Servings: 15 - Plus
The following are all the ingredients you will need to make this meal.
1- 7lb. Bone-in Pork Shoulder Butt Roast (at $1.78 lb. I pay $12.57)
1/2 to 3/4 cups of Angie's Basting Oil (see the recipe below) ($2.00)
1/4 to 1/2 cup of Angie's Dry Seasoning (see the link below) ($1.75)
1 tsp. garlic powder (.18)
3 loafs of French bread ($5.00)
1 bag Romaine lettuce ($3.00)
½ tsp. Adobo to season the sandwiches, if needed (.15)
Mayonnaise to spread on the French bread (.35)
Remove as much fat as you can from the pork.
Place the clean pork in a foil pan or the pan of your choice.
Add the basting oil and the dried seasoning and rub well throughout. Let it rest overnight.
Roast at 285 to 300 degrees, covered. The hours will depend on the weight of the cut, about 1 hour/pound. Since after removing the fat I ended up with approx. 6 lb. I cooked my pork for 6 hours. The lower temperature is what does the magic.
Once is done, remove from the oven and let it rest at room temperature while you prepare the sandwiches.
Use Adobo, lettuce, mayo and Paprika as needed to build your sandwiches.
