Pork Butt (No pulled pork, BBQ or smoked recipes)
- Rocky Road Jan 21, 2012 10:37 AM
I just picked up a 4 lb bone-in pork butt on the cheap today. I've used the search function here and almost all titled threads with pork butt are about pulled pork, BBQ, smoked recipes or arguments about grilling v. BBQ.
I've cooked those many times. I would like to do something different. Is there anything else I can do with the meat?
If you like Indian food, pork butt is great for the classic Goan dish, Pork Vindaloo (it's hot). Here's a Julie Sahni recipe from the NYTimes: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/28/din...
Hungarian Goulash is often made with pork butt or shoulder. There are tons of recipes online.
Chinese roast pork could also work -- either the kind cut up and marinated before cooking like this one: http://www.whats4eats.com/meats/char-... (it'll come out a little bit like jerky), or the kind that is roasted whole like this one: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/chinese-... .
This Viet Namese recipe also looks really good: http://www.theravenouscouple.com/2009...
