My trick to a tasty roast that’s pull-apart tender: Marinate a boneless cut of pork in a tangy sauce overnight before cooking it slowly the next day. It’s unbeatable. —Sue Brown, San Miguel, California

Ingredients

  • 1 boneless pork shoulder butt roast (4 pounds)
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds, toasted
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1/4 cup cider or white wine vinegar
  • 4 green onions, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup cold water

Directions

Cut roast in half; place in a large resealable plastic bag. In a small bowl, combine the water, soy sauce, sesame seeds, molasses, vinegar, onions, garlic powder and cayenne. Pour half over the roast. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate overnight. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
Drain and discard marinade. Place roast in a 5-qt. slow cooker; add the reserved marinade. Cover and cook on high for 1 hour. Reduce temperature to low; cook 8-9 hours longer or until meat is tender.
Remove meat to a serving platter; keep warm. Skim fat from cooking juices; transfer to a small saucepan. Bring liquid to a boil. Combine cornstarch and cold water until smooth. Gradually stir into the pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with meat. Yield: 8 servings.

"This recipe was voted a "10" by everybody who tried it. I use the largest roast I can find, leftover meat makes a good stir-fry or shredded for asian wraps for lunches."
