I have been spending more time perusing the meat section of the market lately trying to step outside my comfort zone. I bought an 8lb Pork Shoulder Butt Roast this week, put a really simple dry rub on it, roasted it slowly for 10 hours, let it rest for about 40 minutes and then put it back in the oven at 500 degrees to crisp up the outside. My 17 year old son declared it was AMAZING, INCREDIBLE, and best thing he’s ever eaten. He just got done eating it for breakfast and requesting it for dinner later in the week.
My kids never complained about my cooking, but it’s feels REALLY good to get that kind of reaction! It encourages me to keep experimenting.
