F&L Market has whole pork Boston butt for $1.49/lb. Use it to make this melt-in-your-mouth roasted pork.
  1. Preheat oven to 320F (standard) or 140C/290F (fan).
  2. Place Sauce ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat. Once better has melted, stir to combine then leave for 1 – 2 minutes until sugar is melted. Remove from heat.
  3. Sprinkle pork pieces all over with salt and pepper.
  4. Line pan with foil then paper, place pork in pan.
  5. Pour Sauce all over pork. Cover with foil. Bake for 1 hour 15 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven, remove foil. Turn pork. Return to oven uncovered for 20 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven. Turn pork, spoon pan juices over. Return to oven for 20 – 30 minutes or until pork is golden and sauce has reduced to a thin syrup (thickens more when it cools).
  8. Stand for 5 minutes, then turn pork to coat in sauce. Serve pork with syrupy pan sauce.
Recipe Notes
1. Skinless, boneless pork shoulder / pork butt / Boston butt. I like cutting it into large chunks to maximise caramelised surface area. You could cut it in half horizontally or vertically to make 2 long strips. In which case, increase the covered cook time by 20 minutes.
2. Slow Cooker directions (By popular demand!) – I haven’t tried this but based on other slow cooker pork roast recipes I’ve done, here is how I would do it: Make sauce per recipe and pour over pork in slow cooker. Cook on low for 6 hours. Remove pork, then pour all liquid into a large skillet (there will be tons of liquid). Simmer rapidly on high and reduce to about 1 1/2 cups. Then pour over pork in a baking pan and roast for 20 – 30 minutes at 180C/350F until caramelized (baste / turn once or twice). The other option is to reduce liquid in the skillet then put the pork pieces in the skillet, turning to coat in the syrupy sauce.
