New England Boiled Dinner

Although this New England boiled dinner recipe is very similar to corned beef and cabbage, a smoked pork butt in the New England boiled dinner gives delicious results in less time than corned beef. Available in your supermarket meat case, smoked pork butts are traditionally wrapped in red plastic. Remove any netting or coverings before cooking. (Don't worry about the name. The butt cut is from the pork shoulder, not the back end!)
