Its A Beast

Ever see How The Grinch Stole Christmas? The Whovillians have a feast where they eat Roast Beast. Yes I know I rhymed there. Anyway, my children call roasts of any kind Roast Beast. This particular roasted pork is pulled and then covered with a homemade BBQ sauce. You could use bottled sauce if you like.

This recipe is so good. Its the best. Which reminds me of another story; my youngest son has a friend who sent a card to his mother when he was small and it read: “You’re the beast mom ever.”  So she is now Beast Mom. And this is The Beast Pork Roast.





Here is what you need for The Beast Pork Roast

4 lb bone in pork shoulder (Its important to use a pork shoulder with the bone in it because these types of roasts are much more tender than say a loin )
4 tbsp smoked paprika
2 tbsp sea salt
2 tbsp chili powder
2 tbsp ground cumin
1 tbsp ground black pepper
1 tbsp dried oregano
1 tbsp ground white pepper
2 tsp cayenne pepper
About 2 cups of your favorite BBQ sauce, I’ll share my recipe.

Put all the ingredients and the roast, but not the BBQ sauce, in a gallon sized zip top bag. Squoosh it around, place the bag in a bowl or pan and put it in the frig.

You should allow the roast to marinate in the seasonings at least over night.

Next morning or whenever you decide to cook it, pour the roast and all the seasonings into your SC. Turn the SC to LOW and allow it to cook for 8-10 hours. I’ll turn mine on at 6:30 when I leave the house and it will be done when I get home in the late afternoon. I don’t even have to use the Lamp Timer on this one!

When its done, take a couple of forks and pull the meat apart. Once you have it all shredded, add the BBQ sauce and let it cook while you’re setting the table or making a side dish.

Its very tasty on buns or just alone with mashed potatoes. YUM.

My BBQ Sauce Recipe. Its not mine because I created it its mine because I use it. I found it online at BBQ University

2 cups pineapple juice
1 to 2 jalapeno chilies, seeded and minced ( I don’t usually use a whole jalapeno)
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
3/4 cup ketchup
3 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
salt (just a pinch) and freshly ground black pepper

1. Combine the pineapple juice, chili, ginger, and cilantro in a heavy saucepan and boil until reduced by half.

2. Stir the ketchup, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, and soy sauce. Simmer the sauce until sort of thick, about 10 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.

    Hi Sylvia,

    I need your help. I am about to make your coconut killer good cake and need to know if I can make the cake tonight and frost it tomorrow am before taking it to a party. Can I leave it out overnight or will it hrt the coconut cream if I refrigerate the cake part? or can I put coconut cream in tomorrow. Help please. You may be able to tell I’m not a cook, but I love this cake. Had it for the first time this year.

    Thanks os much, MJ

      You can refrigerate the cake before frosting it. I’d let it sit at room temp for an hour or so before serving it. So glad you like the recipe, its my favorite!
