I love cooking fattier cuts of meat in a dutch oven! This technique gives the fat a slight char that taste amazing! If you are limiting carbs make a southwestern salad instead of tacos. Make sure to include plenty of healthful sides such as avocado, lime, cilantro, and salsa.
4 lb Boston Butt
1 Onion (medium)
2 tbsp Lime Juice
1 tbsp Chili Powder
1 tsp Oregano
2 tsp cumin
1/2 cup Orange Juice
1 tsp Garlic Powder
Rub spices all over the Boston butt and place in dutch oven (or crockpot).
Add chopped onion, orange juice, and lime juice.
Cook 2 1/2 hours in a dutch oven until fork tender or in the crock pot on low heat 8-10 hrs. (If frozen place on high heat 8-10 hrs in the crockpot).
