However, you can cook pulled pork in the oven with the same great results, and the taste is even better because of the refined flavors you can use such as wine or beer.

➡️ Boston butt, called in some regions pork neck or pork collar, is one of my favorite pork cuts when I make pulled pork in the oven. My slow-cooked pork neck in the oven is very tender and juicy due to the cooking method with foil. At the same time, a roast prepared with Boston butt has a crispy crust on the outside and is very flavored due to garlic and other spices.

➡️ Cooking this pulled pork recipe won’t pose any difficulty to you, even if you’re not a veteran home cook. Simply said, you need to add some spices to the meat and then roast it slowly in the oven until it is so tender that you can pull pieces from the roast chunk without effort.

➡️ Along with this Boston butt recipe, you can serve different side dishes like mashed potatoes, buttered potatoes, fries, boiled rice, risotto, and more. Definitely, you can cook other side dishes of your choice next to this delicious and easy pulled pork recipe.
