This is something new for me. I’m hosting 6 authors today! First, Carol Malone shares a recipe from the Summer Hearts compilation. This sounds like a very fun collection of clean sweet novellas. So here’s the recipe and the scoop on these six great romances! (And learn how you might win one!)
Recipe from Summer Holiday,
Carol Malone’s sweet summer novella in the Summer Hearts compilation.
In Summer Holiday, Lizzy’s grandma cooked pork sandwiches for the farmers who volunteered to help cut the hay for the season. She had to feed a large army of hungry men. This recipe I found on http://www.everydaydutchoven.com/…/fall-apart-tender… is much the same as her recipe.
I cooked a 3 lb. roast in my 12 inch dutch oven with 10 coals in a ring around the bottom and 16-18 in a ring around the outside of the lid with 4-6 spaced evenly in the middle. I changed the coals three times, cooking the roast for a total of 3 1/2 hours. It is extremely tender, you can slice it or pull it apart with a couple of forks. The best part is the wonderful sauce that forms in the bottom of your dutch oven, light and sweetened with apple and brown sugar, add some salt to it if you like but be sure to drown the juicy meat in the delicious drippings.
Fall Apart Tender Slow Roasted Pork
1 pork butt roast (3-4 lbs.)
1/4 to 1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup apple juice
1/2 tsp salt
Lightly oil or spray Dutch oven.
Place pork in large bowl.
Sprinkle the roast on all sides with Worcestershire sauce.
Press brown sugar into pork, coating all sides evenly.
Carefully place in prepared dutch oven.
Pour apple juice around pork roast, being sure not to drizzle it on crusted meat.
Roast at 300 degrees for 3-3 1/2 hours, replenishing coals hourly.
Pull the meat apart.
Stir the salt into the juices remaining in Dutch oven.
Serve immediately on hot, homemade bread with mustard or the drippings from the pork roast.

I am going to try this recipe! Sounds great but I might try it in my crockpot in the summer. In northern WI we don’t really need air-conditioning but I don’t bake much in order to keep our house cool. And here’s the scoop about this great Summer Read! I’m going to give away one EBOOK of this compilation to one commenter, so look for the QUESTION below. Leave a comment to be entered into the drawing for this EBOOK.
