Thread: Pork 'picnic' roast?

    Default Pork 'picnic' roast?

    I seem to remember somebody posting about a lovely slow-cooked pork
    picnic roast they made awhile ago? I just got a small picnic roast at
    Publix (on sale for just over a dollar a pound and the piece I bought
    is three pounds) and I'm not sure how to cook it for the most
    delicious results. Any pointers?

    Pulled pork

    Put 2 tablespoons your handy BBQ sauce or an equal amount of yellow mustard
    in the bottom of a slow cooker. Add the Picnic - nothing else. Turn to
    high - come back later and shred. Serve on buns.

    Slow roast it at 250 to 300 for a few hour.

    or

    Brown it on all sides in a Dutch oven, add some chicken or beef stock and
    then roast it for a few hours at 300 to 350. It will be very tender once
    cooked for a while to break down the collagen.

    Many of us possibly posted that. I use a crockpot and just dry spices at
    the start and a little vinegar to tenderize it. 1/4 cup total liquids added
    at th start no matter what they are, just add as needed and stop at 1/4 cup.

    Place in crockpot on low and cook about 8 hours turning it as you think if
    it. Then, drain, shred, and add the BBQ sauce etc as you like.

    Can that be translated to cook it in a regular saucepan or in the
    oven? I'm probably one of the few people who doesn't have a
    slow-cooker!

    LOL! Yes, but will cost you at least 5$ in electric. (the crockpot will set
    you back 20$ or less and cost at most 20cents to cook this dish).

    Oven method, as water will evaporate, use 1/2 to 1 cup liquid and bake the
    cut at 225 degrees for (I forget, I think it was about 1.5 hours per lb?).
    Higher temp cooking will make it tough as shoe leather. 6 hour cook time
    estimated. (you save a whopping 2 hours on the crockpot and spend 5$ or so
    vs 20 cents).

    I know a sauce pan method too but it's asian, not southern. 2 CUPS soy
    sauce, 1/2 CUP worstershire, 2 cups water for 'loo' sauce. Boil it in that
    then save the sauce and defat to use for a second meat. Takes about 2 hours
    on simmer. Not as good but works.

    A "picnic" is a cut that needs to be gnawed at, doggy-style. Sure,
    you cut off what you can, but ultimately, to get at a lot of the meat,
    it's fingers and teeth. That's why it's so cheap.

    Not necessarily.

    I use it to fix mock porchetta.

    Here is the recipe I use...it's from Zuni Cafe.

    I don't think DH would take it too kindly if I told him I had to go
    out and buy a crockpot tomorrow just so I could cook the cheap pork I
    bought today! Actually I'd love to have a crockpot, but funds and
    kitchen space are both very tight...

    I posted about this, Tyler Florence's Pulled Pork Barbecue. Don't
    anyone go postal on me about using the B word.

    or

    As it happens, I have pork shoulder on my shopping list at 89 cents/lb!
    So you know I'm making this, and the cole slaw. This week.

    Do you have a dutch oven or large covered cooking pot?
    I personally use a deep cast iron covered pot for this kind of thing.
    I don't own a crock pot either at the moment.

    What do you mean? It was easy. I removed the bone, for one thing..and
    it was just meat.

    Are you thinking of something else?

    If you bone it before you cook it, there's wasted meat.

    Wasted meat?

    I only take out the bone..not the meat.

    I think one of us must be thinking of something different......

    It's the shoulder, right? Not just one bone, but several. A lot of
    bone there, but maybe you're a wiz with a sharp knife. Heck, the
    folks who do those turduckens bone whole birds (though I bet there's
    still a lot of meat on those bones).

    Yes, mine was the shoulder or the package said so. There was only one
    bone.

    I haven't cooked it yet so I couldn't swear to it, but the shoulder is
    just the same as the leg, only smaller. The whole one looked just like
    a very small leg roast, and I assume it has similar bones.

    Not on any shoulder I've ever had. One bone. Cook it right and the bone
    pulls right out.
