Smothered Pork Roast with RiceThis Smothered Pork Roast recipe is as simplistic as they come. A seared pork roast, seasoned with salt and pepper, smothered in a gorgeous garlic, rosemary and thyme infused gravy, and braised in a covered Dutch oven, low and slow. It is a heavenly way to utilize a cut of pork that is most often reserved for pulled pork sandwiches. The fragrance of it will surely bring you back to grandma's kitchen and the flavor is just simply pork perfection.
The original recipe calls for a boneless pork butt or shoulder, but I could only find a 7 pound bone-in pork shoulder, and even that just barely squeezed into my Dutch oven. The downside to using the bone-in roast is that there is less meat, but it was enough for the two of us.
