I like BIG BUTTS and I cannot LIE!
Seriously. Who doesn’t?
After all the CrossFit with it’s back squats, front squats, overhead squats, air squats, thrusters and wall balls….you start to get a little of a bootay…
And then all of a sudden your flat “it runs in the family” butt can’t fit into any of your jeans anymore. Skirts are tight but Heeeeelll-Oooooooo bum bum!
Moral of the story? If you have a flat butt and you think it’s all genetics….get squatting. Get low. Get your knees right to the crease of your hips or better yet, below that! You want a booty? You gotta work for it!
Or you can go and buy a pork shoulder (also known as a BUTT roast) and slow roast it to juicy, succulent perfection.
Today’s recipe is for one of my all time favourite big ol’ hunks o’ meat. Dijon crusted pork butt roast! Dijon! I put that shit on everything…seriously. Slow roasting a pork roast is the only way to go. This recipe calls for using an oven, but you can do the exact same thing in a BBQ if you put the roast on indirect heat (ie turn one burner on and put the roast on the side that is turned off). Try to maintain an even 300°F heat on your BBQ and increase the cooking time by about 10 minutes per pound. Voila! Succulent GLORY!
Please, please, please do not cook it beyond 145°F. You do not need to, dry pork is for…um…no one…cause it makes people choke. Pork is the other white meat, so dig in!
