  • Cook Time: minutes
  • Servings: 8-10


  • (4-5 pounds) Pork Shoulder or Boston Butt Roast
  • (10) Garlic Cloves, smashed and chopped
  • (4 teaspoons) Chopped Rosemary
  • (4 teaspoons) Chopped Thyme
  • (4 teaspoons) Whole Grain Mustard
  • (1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons) Olive Oil


In a bowl combine garlic, rosemary, thyme, mustard and olive oil.  Coat the roast with the marinade.  Cover and refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight.

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.  Put roast into an oven-proof skillet or roasting pan and bring to room temperature.  Cook roast covered until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the roast registers 175 degrees for medium.  Check after 2 hours and then every 25 minutes.

Transfer to baking sheet.  Turn oven up to 400 degrees.  Bake an additional 13 to 17 minutes uncovered.
