Preparing pork butt roasted in a spicy tomato sauce.

This is a recipe from my grandmothers Cucina. Pork roast, bone-in with peas and carrots. The difference here is I’m using frozen peas and carrots since I have them available. I made a rub of salt, pepper, oregano, basil, thyme, rosemary, crushed red pepper, parsley, and garlic powder. Then I rubbed that all over the roast prior to searing it. I also scored the fat section with cuts that were not deep cross crossed so the rub was inside all the nooks and crannies. I also added garlic cloves around the roast, top, and bottom by making a hole with a knife and stuffing them inside. Once this was done I seared the meat. With the juice, I added wine, garlic cloves, and half an onion and sautéed. Then added the crushed tomatoes and let that stew for a few minutes. then added the roast, placed the dutch oven in the oven at 275 for the 1st 2 hours then reduced to 250 for the final roasting. Buon Appetito!!!
