Highly seasoned, peppery pork roasts are a hallmark of Louisiana cuisine. This excellent recipe uses fresh cayenne and jalapeño peppers to give the roast that extra kick.

1 (5–6 pound) boneless Boston butt
¼ cup sliced cayenne peppers
¼ cup sliced jalapeño peppers
6 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups sliced green onions
⅛ tsp dried thyme
⅛ tsp dried basil
1 tsp salt
⅛ tsp black pepper
salt and black pepper to taste
Louisiana hot sauce to taste
¼ cup vegetable oil
2 cups diced onions
¼ cup diced celery
¼ cup diced bell peppers
¼ cup parsley
1 cup beef stock

Preheat oven to 375°F. In a small mixing bowl, combine garlic, green onions, thyme, basil, salt and pepper. Pierce holes through roast and fill each cavity with mixture. Next, stuff peppers into holes, leaving approximately 2 inches of peppers exposed. Season roast with salt, pepper and hot sauce. In a 12-quart cast iron Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat. Sear roast in hot oil on all sides. Place onions, celery, bell peppers, parsley and beef stock in Dutch oven. Cover and bake 3½ hours or until tender. Add water if necessary during cooking. Reserve broth for serving.
