5 simple ingredients (and most of them pantry staples) are all you need to create mouthwateringly-good pork butt. A slow cooker makes this roast easy to prepare—just a few simple steps and then the cooker does the work for you. Pro tip: When meat is done cooking, add BBQ sauce, mustard, honey, and soy sauce and cook for 1 hour longer on low. Serve on hamburger buns with a side of coleslaw and baked beans for the ultimate barbecue sandwich.
