My husband's mother cooked pork and beef roasts together and shredded them for sandwiches. I didn't know that, but my brother-in-law remembered  and his sister's confirmed it.

@Sooner   Thanks.  I would never have thought to mix pork and beef for pulled pork sandwiches.  I'll have to try that.  

 

I am pretty much a purest.  I don't mix a lot of foods!  Love roasting veggies so I can eat them separate!


@Zhills I had never heard of it either but tried it with this recipe and it has turned out good.  All beef works, all pork works too!  I use the leaner pork, but other cuts would be fine too.

peach jam sounds delicious. So for lemon juice,does it have be fresh or can it come out of a bottle


 

@Luvsmyfam 

 

This is the recipe I use. I always use fresh lemon. 

DH makes this on the grill but we have made it in the oven a few times. 

 

 

1 cup peach preserves
2 tablespoons honey
Juice of 1 small lemon
1 boneless pork loin roast, about 3-4 pounds
Salt and pepper, to taste

Bring peach preserves, honey, & lemon to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for 2 minutes. Set aside.

Heat oven to 350°. Line a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan with foil.

I put some olive oil on pork roast first.

Sprinkle the pork roast with salt and pepper. Place the roast, fat side up, in the prepared pan. Roast for 1 hour.

Brush the roast all over with the peach glaze mixture. Continue roasting for about 30 to 40 minutes, brushing with glaze frequently.

A meat thermometer should read 160° when inserted in the center of the roast.

Serves 6 to 8.

@robbn99, I use that same McCormicks seasoning packet, and it is the perfect pulled pork seasoning for us. It's excellent....!

@Zhills It's 1 1/2 pounds of EACH, or 3 pounds total.  Or thereabouts!  Sorry I didn't make that clear.

@Luvsmyfam 

 

It depends if you want a "vinegar based" or sweet sauce.

 

We like a sweet sauce and use Sweet Baby Ray's which has several varieties.

We like the Original Sweet Baby Ray's.

DH is picking up a pork butt tomorrow from the meat market. He's going to make it on the Pitt Boss Sun.
