Old Testament Sauce and Pork Butt that isn’t

I had a bit of everything left over that needed to be used up.  Like ground lamb left over from spaghetti sauce and olives left over from pork and olives over potatoes.  Oh, and the figs that were on sale. Don’t forget about the chicken stock and rice that are almost always around my house.  How about we put it all together and see what happens.

I’ll tell you what happens, you take the olives and figs, saute them in some olive oil with garlic and onions.  Add the ground lamb, some chopped tomatoes and enough chicken stock to make a sauce.  Pile on top of some rice, top with Kosher feta and sit down to dinner.  While contemplating your dinner, realize that all of your ingredients are somewhat Biblical and dub your dinner Old Testament Sauce.

Use up leftovers, done.

Cook the most amazing piece of Boston Butt I’ve ever seen, up next.

I recently discovered that you can cook meat in a crock pot without adding any liquid.  I ‘roasted’ a chicken in the crock pot, so I thought I could do the same with the Boston Butt.  So, dry rub with cayenne, garlic, salt, pepper, mustard, paprika, and chili powder all over, let rest overnight in the fridge and into the crock pot.  You know I had to take a  picture before cooking though…

Sorry for the large picture of raw meat… BUT look at it! Doesn’t it look amazing.  AND there’s a secret about Boston Pork Butt, that I’m going to tell you now.  Boston Butt isn’t a piece of the butt, it’s a piece of the shoulder.  It’s also really good.  Especially with, well, just about everything.
