Ingredients

Directions

  • To make the Slow Cooked Pork Roast:

    Remove the pork from the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature before proceeding.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a roasting pan with aluminum foil. Season the meat well on all sides with the Essence, salt, and cayenne pepper. Place a roasting rack inside the roasting pan and place the seasoned pork on the rack, fat side up. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 4 hours.
  • Remove the foil from the pan and continue to bake until the roast is very tender and will pull apart easily with a fork, about 2 hours longer. Remove the pork from the oven and set aside to cool slightly. Remove any excess fat from the roast and discard (if desired – I just love the crunchy bits of skin left on top!)
  • To plate:

    Using two forks or your hands, shred the pork into bite-sized pieces. Serve with sauce and buns and coleslaw if desired.
