Calling this a “recipe” might be a little grandiose, but it’s a great way to get a main dish going with minimal effort and maximal deliciousness.
What we call pork butt is actually the shoulder.
1) Buy a pork butt. It will probably be somewhere in the 5-10 pound range. If you’re lucky enough to have locally raised pork available, go for it! If you can get a bone-in butt, you’ll get the benefit of all of that glycine, proline, and other bone-y benefits.
2) Drop the pork butt into your slow cooker.
3) Dump Montreal Steak Seasoning all over it. Make sure it’s on all the surfaces.
4) Put the slow cooker on medium or auto and leave it to cook until it’s fork-tender, about 8 hours.
4a) Obligatory Spam reference: Leftovers can be pan-fried until crispy in the same pan as diced Spam for maximum pork-y goodness.
