How to Make Boston Butt Cajun Style


  1. Be sure to check out Mr. Pete's Seasonings:
  2. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  3. Remove roast from fridge; generously salt and pepper the roast and let sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes.
  4. With a small paring knife, make incisions deep enough all around the butt to insert a clove of garlic into each. NOTE: I used 8 cloves.
  5. Heat olive oil over med/high heat until good and hot. Sear roast on both sides about 2 minutes on each side.
  6. Generously sprinkle Mr. Pete's Cajun Seasoning all over roast.
  7. Lay onion slices on top of and around roast. Mix remaining ingredients and pour around roast.
  8. Cover pot with a tight fitting lid. Place in oven for 4 to 5 hours and cook until it falls apart. Adjust time for a larger roast.

    Serve with your favorite veggies or shred for BBQ sammie.
