Lovely, lovely pork butt
at $3.89 a pound
All marbled and sexy in that glass case
How can I resist you?
Cheap, porky fatty goodness
I had to take you home with me
But what to do with you, all raw and tough and full of cartilage...
I contemplated the best way to bring out
the tenderness I know you have in you
I gently coated you in Worchestershire
Left you to sit for 30 minutes
And then I covered you and set you in the oven at 200F to keep you warm
And I'll bet you thought I forgot about you
Because I left you in there
For 7 hours while I ran errands on a Sunday
You should have known I would never do that to you!
You had a long time to soften up in that nice warm oven
And hot fat bath that pooled around you
I gently lifted you out, freed you from that bone
Shredded you and tossed some Sriracha on you, just to wake you up a bit
And you, you were delicious.
