  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Season pork roast with garlic salt to taste and place in a 10x15 inch roasting pan. Add water as needed to cover roast halfway.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 2 hours.
  4. When roast is cool enough to handle, cube the meat and reserve the water from the roasting pan. In a large skillet over medium low heat, combine the meat with 2 cups reserved broth and allow to simmer.

Add broth as needed if mixture gets too thick. Combine this mixture with the pork in a 9x13 inch baking dish, mixing together well.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 to 45 minutes.
